Colour INKspiration #CI11

Have you ever seen Blue Tiger butterflies? They’re so pretty and what I thought of when I saw this lovely coffee-inspired colour palette for the Colour INKspiration Challenge #CI11

To create my beautiful butterflies I used these colours and the Watercolor Wings Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! – perfect! Just two score lines gave this simple trifold effect for the card (a Gate Fold) and I layered eight wings onto the outside panels:

Gate Fold cards tend to pop open easily so I adhered a smaller butterfly onto gold foil and a strip of Early  Espresso Cardstock to create a ‘belly band’:

This front view of the card shows the texture I created with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (try saying that in a hurry!):

More embossing on the outside blue panels and another view of those beautiful wings! It’s hard to capture, but they subtly sparkle with Wink of Stella

If you have any questions about the process or the products please ask, and I hope this gives you a little inspiration. Thanks so much for dropping by!
