Just Add Ink #128: Just Add Inspiration


It's Friday!  Are you ready for some Just Add Ink fun to start your weekend?  Well, let's get cracking then.  This week Jodene has found a gorgeous inspiration picture to get the mojo flowing.

Who wouldn't love to see that beautiful bunch of flowers in their house?  I can almost smell how good they'd smell.  I took my inspiration from the colours of the flowers to create this frame for my daughter.  She turned 7 last week and is a real girly-girl, so this is something I knew she'd love for her room.

I was lucky enough to find the frame in an op shop for $3.00.  I had planned to paint it black for another project I had in mind, but the colour was so perfect for this project that I just had to use it.  I painted the matt using some Platinum Shimmer Paint - it came up so beautifully!

Each of the butterflies is stamped with the matching ink using the flourish from Creative Elements and sponged for definition.  A few Rhinestones complete each butterfly.

To finish it all off I spritzed the whole thing with some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint/Isocol mix.  You can see the shimmer on the butterfly above.

I hope you can play along this week at Just Add Ink.
