Inkspirations Challenge #66 - Butterfly & Bleach

Another great colour challenge from Keesh & the Team at Inkspirations this week:-


I have made a circular easel card using the Big Shot & the Scallop Circle Die:-


The background has been stamped with tempting turquoise & I have lightened up the blossoms by bleaching them out.  I used a blender pen to pick up some turquoise ink from the pad to add some depth of colour to the leaves & stems.

The butterfly has been stamped on vellum with versamark ink & then heat embossed in white.  It has been fussy cut & the wings curled to add dimension.  Some organza ribbon & turquoise pearls complete the card.

Hope you can join us this week  You can click on the link on my sidebar to enter the challenge & to check out the DT's inspiration pieces.  :)

Well, this is pretty cool, my friend! I love the bleaching, and the way you've used these colours. Very clever!

The "field" of flowers is so gentle and peaceful with that bleaching technique - it is perfect for that lovely white butterfly!
