Just Add Ink #506....Just Add Inspiration

Hello & happy Friday ~

Welcome to a brand new challenge week at Just Add Ink. Nikki has given us an inspiration pic to use for our creative projects this week.

Now I'm not going to lie, I started & stopped several projects for this one. It kind of did my head in a bit....I guess that's what happens when you have spare time.....I definitely think I create better under pressure with a very short deadline. I had the embossing paste out, little jar images, lots of different foliage & florals....but I wasn't happy with any of it. Put all that aside, grabbed this image (from Avery Elle) & my copics & had this card whipped up in no time.

I chose to let the colours inspire me here. I've used a Blackberry Bliss base, with a layer of vellum & Whisper White run through my Subtle embossing folder. The floral image is heat embossed in gold, & I've used the little navy Happiness Blooms enamel dots to embellish.

If you'd like to see what the rest of the design team has put together for this challenge, head over to JAI for some inspiration & join the creative fun this week. Here is the pic for you.

With isolation restrictions being eased worldwide I hope that you are all well, & enjoying a little more freedom. My family is still staying close to home for now. We're off for our flu shots (finally) this afternoon!

Thanks for stopping by :)
