JAI #356 Choose Two

Well hello there,
our Easter break flew by in a haze of paint as we took the opportunity to paint Mr 9's room. We got the job done but I seriously needed a rest after! In the pursuit of relaxation I did find the time to tackle the new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a Just Choose Two challenge from Kelly. You have three options and we want you to Choose Two. Here they are.

Somehow the combination of circles and metallics appealed to me (although I couldn't resist adding flowers into the mix too).

Glimmery, shimmery shine - don't you love sparkle!! I think you know I do ;)

I went bold with this one and as I was splotching on splashes of colours I did have a moment of 'is this really going to work?' But I was delighted with the end result. I wanted to go with a sort of reverse contrast effect keeping my flowers white and gold and adding all the floral and landscape colours in behind them. I used lots of circles in the making of the card and for my stripey hillside. Metallics came into play in the flowers, glimmer mat and sentiment. This one was made and delivered within a couple of days. I'm happy to say the birthday girl liked it, lots :)

Do go check out the rest of the fabulous projects from the DT. Then show us your take on the challenge!
