Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge
JAI 53 - Inspiration Challenge

Clean & Simple 124

Hi there

I hope you have had a relaxing Australia Day holiday today.  I was hoping to get some quality creative time, but the DH had other ideas about how I should spend the day Smiley. However, I was able to put  this card together for the Clean & Simple #124 sketch, which is below.


I've inked up the lovely daisy stamp from the 'Every Moment' stamp set for the first time and water coloured it with ink pads and Aqua painter.  I'm looking forward to getting my Watercolour Crayon update kit so that I can use the new colours. I've gone with one of my favourite colour combos, chocolate and shades of pink to match the flower. I'm quite happy with the end result but I'm not sure about the expanse of the Chocolate Chip DSP - what do you think?  Anyway here it is.

I think that "expanse" of striped Chocolate Chip is the perfect thing to make the flower (LOVE your coloring!) stand out.

It's perfect, Judy! The effect of the brown striped paper behind the beautiful flower is stunning. And that tiny butterfly adds the finishing touch. xo

I love it Judy, the large expense of brown balances out nicely with the brightness of the pink. The flower is stunning and really finishes the card off beautifully.
