Just Add Ink 84 - Colour Challenge

This week at Just Add Ink they have a colour challenge: "White plus one".

When I first sat down I thought I would use rose red, but no matter how hard I tried and after many attempts, I couldn't get anything to look 'right'. So I completely changed my course and picked up tempting turquoise. I must admit I was a lot happier with the look of this card.

I love how fresh this card feels. I originally had the flowers with no colouring but I felt it needed a bit more depth. So I used my blender pen to add a bit of colour and not make them seem so 'white'. I also added some 2 mm rhinestones from my stash to the middles of the flowers. As you can see I did add a fair bit of dimension.
Thanks for looking!
