Top 4 – Summer Holiday Colour INKspiration Challenge

For those that follow Colour Inkspiration Facebook Group, one of the administrators, Bronwyn Eastley, a Stampin' Up! demonstrator from Tasmania, Australia had given us a summer challenge. The group is on a summer break until mid-February and she wanted to keep us creating! 

Here is what Bronwyn wrote on her blog: "Hi there. Welcome to addINKtive designs. In our Facebook Colour INKspiration Challenge Group, over 350 Group Members recently shared with us their favourite Stampin’ Up! ® Colour and I decided to compile a visual from the results – the Top 4 Favourites and then the most popular colours in each collection. 
Here are the top four favourite colours. It looks like we love our ‘blues’ and ‘purples’So here’s the challenge – Make a paper craft project using 2 or more colours from the Top 4 – Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape; you may also add the Basics such as Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black and/or Metallics."
I went with a simple ink blended background on Shimmery White paper using Stampin' Sponges and the 2 blues - Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.
I die cut the floral focal point through the Big Shot 3 times. Twice in white and once in Highland Heather. I glued them together to form a type of chip board. Next, I mixed a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer and sprayed both the card and the Flourish White die cut for extra shine. When the background was dry, I ran it through my favorite Rectangle Stitched Framelit.

To finish the card I water colored some Shimmery White scrap paper using Gorgeous Grape reinker and a watercolor paint brush. Once dry, I punched 3 small butterflies using the Butterfly Duet Punch. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set stamp with Craft White Ink and then quickly sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat set. A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets on the butterflies was the final touch.

Simple card and ready to have to send to a friend when that occasions arises.

Thanks for staying to the end!
