Colour INKspiration challenge featuring Brilliant Butterflies

Hello and Welcome to Colour INKspiration challenges!  

This is a fun colour challenge featuring gorgeous images and Stampin' Up! colours.

I totally love this image!!  The bird is gorgeous and so are the colours!  I actually looked it up to see what it was and where it came from, and here's what I found.

The green-headed tanager is a brightly colored bird found in the Atlantic forest in south-eastern Brazil, far eastern Paraguay, and far north-eastern Argentina. 
As other members of the genus Tangara, it is a small colorful bird

When I was deciding on my project, I thought about using my sweet songbird punch and stamp set, but really, I didn't think it would evoke the gorgeousness of these colours.......soooo out comes an old favourite the Brilliant Butterflies and a really cool fun technique to add colour.  

I used Stampin' Write Markers to colour the Brilliant Butterflies stamp set, spritzed the stamp to give it a little moisture, and then stamped my image onto the cardstock.  THEN, I used the corresponding Brilliant Wings Dies of all the butterflies and cut out a mask/stencil which I used to give extra colour over the top of the butterflies giving them more depth.  Doesn't it look lovely!!  I will be doing a video showing this technique and this card, so keep an eye out for it!!  It will be on my Facebook Page at Handmade by Julia Quinn, and also on my YouTube channel at Handmade by Julia Quinn

I have also featured the lovely Quiet Meadow stamp set for the text and splodges adding some more interest to my project.  The lovely lovely greetings come from the fabulous Charming Sentiments Bundle which is full of great dies that outline the greetings perfectly!!  

In case you didn't notice, my card is also a fun z fold which looks so great in these colours!!
