JAI #399: Just Add Water

Hi!



Welcome back to the new Just Add Ink challenge. This week Chloe has set the task, and it's to Just Add Water. I love how broadly that could be interpreted!


I hadn't done any colouring for a while, so I decided to pull out my Watercolour Pencils, Wink Of Stella and the Just Add Colour DSP. The underwater design on one of the sheets was perfect for this challenge!

It was heaps of fun using the different colour pencils to blend and create some more realistic pictures. The seaweed at the bottom right uses Old Olive and Daffodil Delight, and the seahorses used a mix of Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Basic Grey.

I love using my Wink Of Stella pen to smooth out the colours. It's a great way to blend the pencil lines that also adds a gorgeous shimmer to the card. Hard to photograph, but trust me, it's shimmery! I love how the Basic Black card base makes the colours pop.

I was a bit tired of colouring by the time I got to the inside, so I cheated a little and used the fish stamps from Jar Of Love to finish the card. Do you cheat a little like this sometimes?

Why not pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog, where you can see the cards the rest of the Design Team have created? You can also link up your card for the challenge. How will you add water to your card?

Bye for now,

Tina
