Just Add Ink Summer Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our first Just Add Ink challenge for 2022 and in celebration we are having a fun Blog Hop! You may have arrived from the lovely Kim's  colourful project or you may be starting here.If you get lost along the way. clicking the challenge graphic will take you to the Just Add Ink blog and a full list of everyone taking part.I hope you have a lot of fun Hopping around using the Next button at the end of this and everyone's posts and are inspired by the Summer themed projects to join in the challenge yourself! 

This is the first of two projects I created this week. Both are Sunflower themed as they are a Summer favourite of mine and I have some growing in my garden again this year.

This image is coloured with a mixture of Copics and Blends and features the beautiful Sunflower Dies as a background. I do love a white on white texture with a pop of colour.

In this version, the colours were sponged first and the image stamped over the top and embossed in Black afterwards. The background uses the Subtles EF and it is indeed Subtle.

Which of these do you like better?  

You're off to see the lovely Nikki"s project next which is super pretty. I hope you enjoy the Hop and don't forget to come back and join in the challenge!
