Just Add Ink #286 - Just Add anything with W
Tina has suggested something a little different for our new challenge over on the Just Add Ink blog today. Use anything starting with W on your project, technique, theme, whatever you like! Here I've used Water Colouring (on Whisper White c/s lol).
I heat embossed my Doodle Bloom flowers (love them) on water colour paper, added some water with a paint brush, using the same brush quite wet I added some ink (Lilac Posies from Memento) and moved it around with yet more water. The card uses Soft Suede striped paper from the Neutral Designer Pack, with a strip of the matching c/s underneath. It has quite a gold look don't you think? I have added some clear Wink of Stella to my flowers, it has a really subtle shimmer which doesn't show up so well in photos unfortunately.
A little over exposed, I just can't get my pics right lately. It took me forever to take halfway decent pics in our last house, and now that we're in the new house I'm having trouble again. Despite all the lovely large north facing windows that I thought would be wonderful in helping me get good photos, there is just too much sun. In time I'm sure I'll find the perfect spot. My light tent hasn't been too helpful either :o(. Certainly this card is really pretty, and vibrant irl.
I've been baking this past fortnight. Lots. Chocolate chip biscuits, Caramel slice, Chocolate coconut slice - several times because it's a favourite and just so easy to do. I'm hosting a little gathering on Sunday so I'm going to make some scones - nothing nicer than a batch of fresh warm scones with delicious raspberry jam and whipped cream. Now if this was a food blog, and I was a decent photographer I might share pics of all these yummies....lol.
Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a good one. Thanks for stopping by today!
