Just Add Ink #173 - Watercoloured Simply Sketched

This week the lovely ladies at JAI have a fantastic challenge of "Just Add Water".  Seeing as watercolouring is one of my all time, favourite techniques, I have created this card using my aquapainter & some gorgeous goodies from the new SU catty:-


The ruffled stretch trim is just divine ♥, so I decided I needed a double row! The cantaloupe cardstock has been spritzed with shimmer spray & the blooms have been washed with shimmer paint.  :)

The challenge is just about to end, but you can check out the fabulous DT samples & the gallery here.

Card Components (All SU except as noted)
Crisp Cantaloupe & Watercolour cardstock, Staz On & Crisp Cantaloupe Inkpads, Old Olive Marker, Blender Pen, Aquapainter, Simply Sketched Stamp Set, Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Stretch Trim, White Baker's Twine, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Frost White Shimmer Paint (retired), Corner Rounder Punch, Chalk Talk Framelit Dies, Vintage Faceted Button
