Just Add Ink #359 - Just Add Inspiration

Good Friday morning!

I'm a bit late getting my post up this morning as I'm just home from a Mother's Day morning tea at school with the twins. They sang a concert & then we went to each of their class rooms to do some activities together, followed by coffee & cake. A lovely start to the day.

Kim has given us a sweet inspiration pic to use as the new challenge at Just Add Ink this week.  I'll add it at the bottom but here is my take on it.  I did a little watercolour wash before adding a few botanicals using a couple of the new In Colours - Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.  I'm loving ALL of the new colours!  Can you see all the shimmer I added with Wink of Stella?

If you'd like to join the challenge fun this week pop over to JAI & check out the details.  Here is the gorgeous inspiration pic for you, & you'll find more over on the blog from the design team.

I hope all you gorgeous mummies have a fabulous Mother's Day on Sunday.  I'm sure all our lovely children (and their daddies) will spoil us rotten.  We're planning a family bike ride around the lake, and some lovely chocolate & raspberry cake - which I'm going to bake.  If it looks awesome I may even take a pic to share :)

  1. This is so pretty P! Your watercolouring highlights your sweet posy so beautifully and I love how you've paired the lovely new Colours with softer tones - such a lovely combo! xx

  2. That gorgeous cloud of blue behind the flowers is just a beautiful way of making the whole gleaming cluster pop off the card P. xxx

  3. Well your cake did look awesome, as is this pretty card! Love the watercolour behind your vibrant posy P...So, so pretty! xx
