Watercolour fun

Long time no blog...  I have been seriously busy with my studies and barely crafting :(

I have just had a few weeks off uni and after I finally felt rested it was pretty much holiday over... I  start back tomorrow and finally got inspired to craft a couple days ago.

Watercolouring is really on trend at the moment and I was playing around with a few techniques.   I wanted to enter the current challenge over at Just Add Ink which is a colour challenge using these colours
JAI 222

You can check out the challenge here

Here is my entry.     I embossed the images using clear embossing powder and used blushing bride and bermuda bay inks to create the background piece.     I kept the rest of the card fairly simple to let the gorgeous image pop.     I must say it took a LOT of messing around to make the soft suede work in the design.... but I think I got there in the end ok.

Will try blog more soon.....
