This month, I have the honour of being the Guest Designer over at one of my favourite challenges, the Color Throwdown. I’m beyond thrilled!
This week’s colour pallet is amazing – purple, blue, turquoise and… yellow! Wow… the idea of yellow and purple really threw me for a bit!
I was originally thinking of a geometric-type design, probably because of the inspiration photo I think… but in the end I decided to break open my favourite Avery Elle butterflies for the first time in maybe a year! I stamped three images using Gina K inks (Wild Lilac, Powder Blue and Turquoise Sea), added some accents with my Prismacolor pencils and then cut them with the coordinating dies.
I decided to use yellow as an accent colour. I cut a white panel with the Simon Says Stamp Heart Breeze die – an oldie but a goodie! I adhered the panel to my card base and then inlaid hearts and dots which I cut from an ink-blended piece of card (I used Gina K Sweet Corn ink). I adhered my butterflies and stamped a Penny Black sentiment before adding a few small die cut butterflies and sequins to complete my card.
