As mentioned in yesterday’s post I used the colour combo from the Colour INKspiration challenge site for my Baby Wipe technique card. The colours were Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green (not used in yesterday’s post). When I stamped my image for yesterday’s card I did another one and have used some of the images (once die cut) for the colour challenge. Check back on Friday to see how I used the remainder of the images :).
The Butterfly Brilliance stamp set is a large image stamp set that when you die cut it with the coordinating Brilliant Wings die gives you six different sized butterflies. I’ve used 4 of the 6 butterflies on this card – 3 on the front and 1 inside. The card base is Flirty Flamingo with a mat of Shimmery White that has been stamped using the Birch stamp – another large stamp set – in Granny Apple Green.
The Brilliant Wings dies consist of 12 dies – one outline die that cuts all 6 butterflies in one go, 6 detailed butterfly dies to compliment the outline dies (or can be used on their own) plus 5 accent dies. For this card I die cut the detailed dies from Vellum Cardstock and then overlaid to the stamped images. This has given the effect of the butterflies in motion. The sentiment (from Itty Bitty Birthdays) is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies. Instead of using some ‘bling’ I’ve used the gold Metallic Pearls.
Here you can see the intricate cutting of the overlay die and the butterfly which has been adhered to the inside of the card.
If you have some time over this long weekend why not have a go at creating a card using these colours from the Colour INKspiration challenge on Facebook.
Until next time …
