Just Add Ink #173...

This weeks challenge over at Just Add Ink is to "Just Add Water".

JAI #173 challenge pic?

The story behind this weeks challenge, comes from this complimentary water provided by the apartment that the JAI girls stayed in recently, when we attended Stampin-Up's Convention in Brisbane last month.
We had all been drinking it for the 5 days we stayed there and while waiting at the airport on the way home, Christine noticed the writing on the label....pretty cool huh! It was made just for us!.... Not really, but it's pretty apt considering..:0) Hence the idea for this weeks challenge!

I added water to this weeks card, by water colouring the lovely flower from the new hostess set, called "Simply Sketched"...using Crisp Cantaloupe ink & an aqua pen.

"Thanks for stopping by & have a lovely weekend"
All supplies used are Stampin-Up.


  1. This is such a Nikki card in design and colours...beautiful. It also reminds me of the beautiful dresses and outfits you wore while at Convention. Have a gorgeous weekend.

  2. The watercoloured flower makes a gorgeously striking design for the dress Nikki. Love the little hints of subtle sparkle too! xxx

  3. You have created such a lovely card using Crisp Cantaloupe Nikki! Love the stamping of the flower on her skirt and your paper piercing adds that little bit extra!

  4. Superbe, j'adore le timbre que tu as utilisé, carte tres douce et fraiche .Vraiment tres belle harmonie de couleur .

  5. So beautiful, Nikki! The soft colour is gorgeous, and I love how you chose to create detail on the skirt - very clever. The embossing and paper-piercing are lovely finishing touches.

  6. What a pretty card and I just love that flower stamp!
