Colour INKspiration Blog Hop – CI26 – A Beautiful Shimmery Butterfly


Colour INKspiration Challenge

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 26 and this week we have another fabulous Pinterest inspired colour palette to work with!

A beautiful picture featuring a palette of Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening featuring these colours.. 

If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Kelly Kent. What a cute project – I love her baby card!

I went with a Butterfly card for these colours. Have you seen the blog of the fellow Design Team Member who also featured a butterfly?

I’ve not added a sentiment deliberately – that way I have a versatile card on hand that I can use for a variety of purposes when the need arises.

The butterfly is from the Beautiful Day stamp set, and I’ve heat embossed the image in Copper onto watecolour paper. I’ve given it a watercolour all over with an Aqua painter using Bermuda Bay ink and then fussy cut it out.

When I first saw this image in the catalogue, I wondered how it would work with some of the other butterfly stamps. So for this card, I’ve paired it with two images from Watercolor Wings. The image of the butterfly wing centres and dots is stamped in Emerald Envy and the image of the outside edge of the wings is stamped in Tranquil Tide.

To add some sparkle to the wings, I’ve added a touch of Wink of Stella. You can see that in the close-up below.

The card base is Sahara Sand cardstock and there is also a layer of Sahara Sand cardstock on the cardfront that is slightly smaller than the card base.

But before I attached the layer to the cardbase,- I added some texture with the new shimmery white embossing paste and the brick shaped from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks

I added a couple of drops of Sahara Sand from the Ink Refill to the paste before applying. In the photo below you can see how shimmery the paste really is!

I must say this Shimmery White Embossing Paste is one of my favourite items in the new Occasions Catalogue. Let me know if you have tried it yet?
