I do so love me some colour and the combo this week at Just Add Ink challenges is totally gorgeous!
For my mixed media slimline card I've created a watercolour effect with the challenge colours and added some neutrals of gold, black and cream.
I began with gold embossing the clocks then spritzed with water and used a paintbrush to add my colours, drying between layers. A little background stamping which I again spritzed. The butterflies were given a similar treatment and I used gold wax on the accent pieces and archival ink on the bodies. I've splattered with polished pink ink and white paint to tie all the elements together.
