Butterfly love for Colour INKspiration

Hello and Welcome to our fabulous Colour Challenge!!

This is a fabulous group of creative cardmakers who use colours inspired by gorgeous images.  

This time the colours are Basic White, Real Red, Pool Party and Night of Navy.  

The first step for my cards was to create a large sheet of vellum using the Stampin' Blends for all these colours with the addition of Isopropyl Alcohol to make them bleed and run. I also flicked the dried colour with some alcohol and a brush.  The Pool Party is very subtle with the other amazing colours.  The coloured one sheet wonder was then chopped into four to create my cards.  

These cards are a little z fold.  To embellish, I've used the gorgeous Brilliant Wings dies and the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set.  You can purchase these as a Bundle which gives you a discount!   The butterflies were stamped in Night of Navy and coloured with watercolour pencils.  I added some Wink of Stella to the finished butterflies which then made the colours really vibrant.  

The greetings come from the Sale-a-bration host stamp set In Your Words.  I've cut out the words on the front using an Ornate Frames die.  

As the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set only has 6 butterflies, the last card features white die cut butterflies using the Brilliant Wings dies.
