Just Add Ink #521 Inspiration Birthday



Happy Friday everyone and welcome back again! It's the first week of Spring and the signs are plenty - the sun is up earlier in the morning, it's getting lovely and warm on our daily walks and the trees are all in beautiful blossom here in Melbourne. 


It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week Rachael has suggested this gorgeous Inspiration Photo for us all to use. With the soft florals and greenery and touches of copper there is much to love and you can take as little or as much as you like to create your project. The design team has as always created a diverse array of projects and we'd love you to join us.


I loved the look of that single white floaty bloom surrounded by the greenery and copper details. So I started with vellum and die cut the bloom and used Blends to add a little colour to the back of the petals. 
Then there was layering of the leaves and copper elements but paired back to keep it clean.


To be able to pop the greenery under the vellum petals without being seen, a layer of white card was added underneath the vellum. There is also a small shadow coloured around the flower too. You could easily change the sentiment here to fit many occasions - Christmas or even Sympathy but as it's Spring, I decided to go with Birthday.
