Just Add Ink #253 Inspiration Photo

There is a photo inspiration on the Just Add Ink challenge this week - and this is my response to the photos!!  I'm not really into pink, but I do like how this has turned out!!!  I've used the colours from the photos as my inspiration, and the lettering of happy is reminiscent of the circle images from the photos.

The Blended Bloom has been coloured with ink and an aqua painter.  I stamped the image with Stazon onto watercolour paper, saturated the paper with water, and then used the ink onto the petals and allowed the ink to move and fill the petals.  I did add extra ink for the insides of the petals where I thought the colours should be darker.  I used the same technique for the surrounding edges too.


  1. For someone who isn't a fan of pink, I think you've done a fantastic job! Your flower is stunning and love the way you coloured it. Your 'happy' in black is perfect against the pink background and love the hint of yellow in the bottom corner. So glad you joined us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. Love your design Julia! Your flower really pops and catches the eye! Lovely card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  3. This is beautiful, Julia. The grey background is the perfect base for the bold colours. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week. :)

  4. I really like how you have shaded the background. I also like how the centre of the flower seems to be lifting off the page. Chantell

  5. Such a gorgeous card Julia! I love the way your flower really pops against your grey background. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week :-)
