JAI#71...Just Add a Colour Challenge


Soooo happy to be having a long weekend. Gorgeous Kid and I are off to Sydney to make the most of the extra day off. We'll be taking in Luna Park and the Aquarium which should be lots of fun ... and rather tiring for mum is my guess!

Over at Just Add Ink this week the lovely Paula set us a Black and White only challenge. I love black and white, always striking and most often elegant too.

See that gorgeous flower? Recently both Nikki and Kathy have been making them. I couldn't resist trying one out myself (and in fact made several). I followed their links to Joanne Leddy and used her tutorial to make my own. The photo honestly does not do it justice. It's quite stunning irl...and you know I sprayed a liberal amount of Champagne Mist all over to give it a gorgeous sheen! It's my 'go to' product atm.

A pretty self explanatory card, however, if you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email.

Meantime head on over to JAI and check out all the Black and White goodness going on. Hope you join the challenge this week!

If you're lucky enough to be enjoying a long weekend, have fun!

A very special happy birthday wish to my dear friend Jayne today. Enjoy!
