Just Add Ink #496 Inspiration

Hello there,
with the recent influx of rain, which was very welcome after our summer of drought and smoke, my garden is happily blooming and so is my card for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week Lou has given us a warm toned sea themed inspiration photo. Use the colours, patterns, textures or objects in the inspiration picture to inspire the main element of your project. Here's the picture.

Here's my card. 

Seaside Spray really is the perfect cool blue tone to represent the water. To add to the beach feel I added a woodgrain embossed texture to the base panel. The flowers are coloured with the rich tones of the starfish and sand. So lots and lots of colouring with blends, then also lots of careful trimming of the flowers and foliage from the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp. I do love there are so many options within that one stamp to colour. 

TIP:The main thing to keep in mind when you are colouring with blends is to maintain enough contrast, so go darker than you feel comfortable with in those shadow areas.  

To be honest I think my large orange toned flowers could have had more contrast. So I'll work on that next time. A swish of wink of stella, some silver glimmer and silver pearls are the finishing touches to glam it up.

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of lovely projects to show you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
