Hello again! I’m popping in today to show you my creation for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. Challenge #369 is an inspiration challenge, using the photo below. What excites me about this week, is that it’s my first time as a Guest Designer for Just Add Ink! I was thrilled when the admin team asked me to take part, so I hope you enjoy what I have created for you! ;)

18193680_278303982639750_3498347230135213680_ninbetween lineFor my creation, I took inspiration from the balloon, water, and 3 colours I picked up from the balloon – Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party. I used a base of thick Whisper White card. On the card front I pasted a piece of retired DSP with Pool Party coloured stripe print on it.

On Watercolor Paper, I stamped and heat embossed the balloon images from Lift Me Up, using Versamark and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This was then given a watercolour wash with an Aqua Painter, using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party inks.
