At Just Add Ink we always like to start the year off with a blog hop to showcase the first challenge of the year. Rochelle has suggested we all Just Add Something New.
That won't be hard for the Stampin' Up! demonstrators out there as the new Occasions catalogue and Sale-A-Bration promotions have started. If you don't have anything new from SU! please join us using whatever new product you have and be sure to let us know what it is. To make the blog hop extra special, the design team have donated new SU! Sale-A-Bration items as prizes to the winner and two honorable mentions participants.
So let's get started with my something new.
I shared my love of the Rose Wonder bundle in my 2016 Occasions Catalogue top 3 picks post so it's probably no surprise I've use it for this very girly watercoloured card.
I must have been subconsiously thinking of my fave Sonia roses in mind when making it as the watermelon wonder ink I used looks so similar here. Anyway, I digress.
I cut the rose & leaves with the Rose Garden thinlit die & thick whisper white card (backed with a double sided adhesive sheet), carefully separated all the inside pieces, watercoloured them (with aquapainter, watermelon wonder, mint macaron ink pads), then pieced them back together onto some Love Blossoms DSP. I added a finishing touch of glitter with my obsession, clear wink of stella glitter pen. You can see the sparkle better in this close-up. Sooooo pretty. You can see all supplies I used at the bottom of this post too.
