Just Add Ink # 72........A colouring Challenge!

This week JAI has challenged us to "Just Add Colouring" this challenge is from the very talented  Tania Gould.

Whether you prefer watercolour pencils-markers or copics it's up to you, so grab your preference and play along.....If you want some fantastic inspiration check out the awesome work the rest of the Design Team  came up with.

                                          Here's a couple of pics from close-up and  inside........

My colouring preference for this one was my  Ink pads with a Blender Pen in Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive on watercolour paper, Cardstocks are Basic Black & Old Olive with Rich Razzleberry DSP.
The border is the  Eyelet Border Punch.
These images are from the  set "Awash with Flowers",  the greeting is from Sincere Salutations.
Embelishments are Old olive Grosgrain, Rhinestone & Designer Brads & Basic Rhinestones.
I also used a Stamp-a-ma-Jig for correct double stamping of the front image and leaf placement.

All products are Stampin-Up!

Thanks for stopping by....I hope you get a chance to play along!
