Inkspirations Colour Challenge #60 - Bliss Butterflies

Well, another week has flown by & it's time for a challenge!

Keesh has set these gorgeous colours - Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, So Saffron & Whisper White.

Seeing as I only have one of these coloured inkpads I envisioned making one of those lovely CAS cards - you know the ones - all white, with a few pops of colour!  Sadly, it just didn't work for me....

So I made this one this instead:-

Can you guess where the inspiration came from (*wink*)?  Here's a hint:-

I stamped each of the butterflies in Versamark ink, clear embossed & then cut them out.  They have been attached to a strip of white Shimmer paper, which has a lovely sparkly sheen.  The rose layer has been stamped in Versamark with the large Baroque swirl, had the edges sponged (with Pomegranate) & then added to the black base card.  It's still a reasonably simple card, but I think it turned out a treat - Thanks for the wonderful inspiration piece Keesh!!  :)

Here's another look at those butterflies:-

Maybe now I should head back to my craft table & have another go at the "all white" version!  :)
