Just Add Ink #213 Inspiration picture

This week's inspiration challenge at Just Add Ink is right up my alley...... pink, chevrons and flowers!

The inspiration pictures gave me so many ideas that I didn't know where to start.
I remembered seeing an interesting technique using masking fluid over on this blog where Amber gives a great tutorial.
I decided to give it a try!  I firstly had to buy the fluid at a local craft store and then I did quite a few test runs to make sure I was happy with the final product.

Here's what I eventually came up with

I've also borrowed another technique for the paper feathers from fellow Design Team member Susan.
You can see her feathers here.

The pink in these pictures looks really dark but in real life it's' much softer! 

Here is the inspiration picture - 

The design team have out done themselves this week so hop over and check out their creations.

I hope to see your inspired designs this week so link up here!
