Just Add Ink Challenge #61

This particular card is embellishment free as I wanted to use it for this week's Just Add Ink challenge (JAI 61) Just Add Stamps . The challenge was to use only stamps and cardstock. I love the thought behind this challenge as it's perfect for people who don't happen to have a whole lot of the bits and pieces (embellishments).

My favourite Sale-A-Bration set is definitely the Sweet Summer set. It's got so many combinations available and is perfect for any occasion.  Deciding how I wanted my flowers to look was the hardest part for me!  I'd set myself a personal challenge for the week which was to water colour with ink pads and a blender pen, and to make something using the current In Colour range.  I managed to do both with these cards. Horray! I love the way they turned out and it was a lot of fun blending the colours together.  I orginally made the purple card below but then tried using the different flower heads and I just liked it better.
