Just Add Ink #441 Inspiration

Hello there, 
we are having a VERY hot summer this year (bring on Autumn I say!) but until then, I am seeking out every cool corner of the house, especially when I sit down with a cup of tea and a sweet treat on the side. If you are a fan of sweet treats then this week's Just Add Ink challenge is right up your alley too! This week Jo has suggested we Just Add Inspiration and her picture is filled with sweet cake creaminess. Yum! Your project for the challenge can be inspired by the colours, patterns or elements in the picture. Here's the picture. 

I used a several elements of the inspiration picture for my project - the colours, the sweet treat theme and I pulled the texture from the cupcake wraps.

I wanted to get a good balance of the three colours I selected (Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Highland Heather) so I layered up three stitched ovals to frame a multi coloured cake, which is kind of perched on the fun graphic style sentiment. I am really enjoying adding some colour to the larger scale sentiments that have open line art letters. The corrugated background references the cup cake wrappers and add loads of texture. I also added in some silver glimmer and thread to add the essential bling elements!

Please go check out the awesome projects from the rest of the JAI design team, and then come back and join in the challenge.
