Inkspirational - Inspiration Photo Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!  It's a beautiful day here and is going to be a warm one. 24 degrees Celcius!  It was a bit rainy yesterday so sunshine is very welcome.  In Canada it's the Victoria Day long weekend and usually the one where people start camping and put their gardens in.  It almost always rains so we skip the camping. LOL!  We are thinking of going to get a few bedding plants though. :-).

Anyway, it time again for another challenge over at Inkspirational. It's a photo inspiration challenge and it's an awesome one!

Aren't those colours amazing?!  That's what inspired me for this birthday card I made for a friend.  Take a look....

I stamped my foliage (CAS-ual Fridays) in Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress inks along the bottom of my card.  Using the same ink colours I inked up my butterfly (STAMPlorations) carefully blending the colours. I added a bit of sparkle to the butterfly with my Wink of Stella pen.  Then I stamped the sentiment (CAS-ual Fridays) in black.  It's so bright and bold!  I love it!  :-)

Well, I hope you pop on over to the blog and checkout the rest of the DT projects and our fabulous Guest Designer.  There's some seriously amazing projects!  Thanks for dropping by and have an awesome day!
