Just Add Ink #410 - Just Add Inspiration

Happy Friday friends ~

Back so soon? Yep, but you'll notice my cards are fairly simple & mostly white for now. I'm slowly getting back into the swing of crafting again. Thank goodness as it's my happy place.

The new challenge over at Just Add Ink this week is an Inspiration Pic from, Jo. I'll add it at bottom for you. I pulled out a gorgeous floral stamp called Fresh Bouquet from Inspired by Stamping that I've had waiting to be inked for almost two years now. Gasp!

After white heat embossing the image I used my SU Watercolour Pencils (& an Aqua Painter) to bring these lovely florals to life. I chose colours similar to those in the Inspiration Pic. Notice I even added a few enamel dots as per the spots in the pic? The sentiment was chosen because this is another card being sent to my dear 93 year old Gran in New Zealand.

Do you feel up to tackling this Inspiration & joining the challenge fun? Head over to JAI to get all the details. I look forward to seeing all the gorgeous projects you come up with.

I've been in hospital for surgery this week so this post was scheduled while I laze around in bed recovering. I did do something a little exciting last week though - had my hair cut short. I've always had medium to long hair (aside from a shorter style I tried about 4 years ago) so it's a big change for me. So far I'm loving it...sooooo easy to maintain.


Hehe don't mind the 'filters', it was night by the time I got home from the salon & the downlights were not playing nice.

Thanks for stopping by for a little look at what I've been up to. See you again soon.
