We thought we would keep things simple this month and just provide you with a beautiful inspiration piece to get your creativity flowing!  Isn't this just stunning?  There are so many directions you could go in with this one! The colors or patterns.  The watercolored background.  Try pulling out your Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die or some other patterned die.  Maybe ink up a single bold stamp with an ombre effect in these colors.  This watercoloring video could be amazing for this!  Put the *smoosh* technique to good use with your ink refills.  The sky is the limit!!!  All of your you beautiful creations will look stunning together in the inLinkz list for this!  Enjoy and most of all have fun!

Michelle-Leone

Michelle Leone created this beautiful circular focal point by framing out a portion of her Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die-cut.  Her use of watercoloring is just stunning!

Susie-Moore

Susie Moore used the colors from the inspiration photo to create her bright spring card.  The scattered sequins really help to add balance to the project.
