Butterfly Burst

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #491 is up on the blog. This biweekly challenge runs through Thursday, April 21, 2022. Below is the inspiration photo from which you can select three colors of your choice. Black and white are free colors. You may use additional colors as long as they are present in the photo. I used a variety of colors.

The design was die-cut from white card stock and the ink was added with brushes. I wanted to use silver foil as the background for the butterflies but silver is not a permitted color. Instead, I went with white glittered cardstock and adhered the butterfly panel to it. Next, I adhered the panel to a white card base and added a few gems. The inside was decorated with butterflies punched from glittered cardstock. I decided not to add a sentiment at this time.

We invite you to join us at Color Dare Challenge #491. Our challenges are biweekly. We have a new challenge beginning every Friday morning and running for two weeks so there is always an active challenge to try.

Inks: DOX Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean, Lucky Clover, Spiced Marmalade & Picked Raspberry
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Basic White & Glittered (white) 
Die: RCD "Butterfly Burst" (w/stitching)
Punch: SU! "Itty Bitty Butterfly" (inside of card)
