JAI #577 Colourful Plants

Happy Friday everyone and welcome back! Today is a special day - and I can say so myself as it's my birthday! I am so glad too that Dan Andrews our Victorian Premier chose to have today as the day we can bring our long lockdown to an end!

This week at Just Add Ink we have a gorgeous Inspiration Photo challenge for you suggested by Kim. The design team have all created a wonderful variety of cards to inspire you. We'd love to have you join us. 

For my card I tried to recreate the Inspiration Photo leaves. I sponged a rainbow of colours onto water coloured card stock and then flicked some Distress Resist Spray and a little water onto the colours to recreate the water droplets in the photo.

Then the leaves were die cut and arranged in black and sillver foil pots to allow the colours to shine.

Card stock: Whisper White, (thick and standard) Basic Black, Silver Foil, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Versamark
Stamps: Pretty Perennials
Accessories: Die cutting machine, Plant dies, White EP,  Silver EP,  Rectangle Framelits 
Non SU: TIm Holtz, Distress Inks. Distress Watercolor Card stock.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can pop by Just Add Ink and I look forward to seeing what you create inspired by this pretty photo.

Til next time,
