Just Add Ink #633 Colour


Hello there,
another week closer to Christmas and another Christmas card coming your way - that's probably not a surprise. This week at Just Add Ink we have a colour challenge for you, suggested by me ;) Your can use it for a Christmas project as I have, or for whatever purpose that works for you. Here are the colours.

And this is what I came up with.

This was pretty much all about the watercolouring. I black heat embossed the large poinsettia twice, so that I could cut out the central ring of petals and mount them up on top of the base layer. I used several layers of colour to build up the colour and once dry added little silver pearls to the centre. A simple watercolored background splattered with white gouache, and sentiment finished off the front. For the inside I added one more watercolored poinsietta.

It's only getting busier at this time of year so something simple was definitely the way to go this week.

The JAI design team have lots of lovely projects to inspire you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.
