Colour INKspiration 13

Hello there,
welcome to the Colour INKspiration 13 blog hop. If you are hopping your way around the blog hop, you will have arrived from my lovely friend Nikki Spencer's blog. I'm sure you were wowed by her project! If you are starting the hop here but would like to go to the start at the  Colour INKspiration challenge page over on Facebook, just click the link to be redirected and ask to join the group, that way you can load your projects directly to the Facebook group and join in the fun every 2nd and 4th Wednesday. Our INKspiration for this round is filled with delicate floral tones.

Here's what I came up with this time.

I still had mermaids on my mind when I started thinking about these colours. So out she came again. This time I decided to keep the colours focused in the mid section of the card and even created a wave line at the top. With the mermaid looking out over the waves I thought "thinking of you" was the perfect sentiment! As a last minute addition I wrapped silver thread over my watercolored embossed panel to add more texture and sheen to the 'water'. The challenge runs till July 24th. Hope you can join us! Next up, on the blog hop is another friend, the very talented Kelly Kent. Enjoy!
