JAI #169: Just Add Inspiration

Hi!

It's the end of a rather wet week in Adelaide, and therefore time for another Just Add Ink challenge.


This week Delys has challenged us to use this picture to inspire our projects.


Isn't it a great picture? The Design Team have come up with lots of different ways to interpret it.  After a few failed attempts at getting the colour gradient effect with a brayer I abandoned the idea and instead went with some simple colour blocking.


I tried to go with the layers of colour in the top half of the photo. I used Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo. As you can see I framed the sentiment in the bold black.


It's probably a bit hard to see in the photo, but the whole colour blocked panel is raised up from the base card, where I stamped the sentiment. It's a great way to give a bit more emphasis to the sentiment.

Stamps: Feel Goods
Ink: Island Indigo
Cardstock: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Window Frames Framelits, Dimensionals

How will this picture inspire you?  See you over at Just Add Ink!

Bye for now,

Tina

  1. Your colour blocking works well in replicating the colours of the photo and it empowers your message. Have a great weekend Tina.
