Color Inspiration

Twins*-uPIYCf3nUOeY*u3*dLjDKciWl4q8dIn0*2vleQ/JuneColor.pngIt’s time for a Color Inspiration Challenge at Catch the Bug.  Here is the fun color palette to work with.

Image: Baby Bundle Flower – Bugaboo Stamps
Sentiment: Cuddly Buddly
Die: Butterfly – Simon Says Stamp
Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug
Embellishments: Enamel Dots

I have to admit I struggled a bit for how to use these colors and then I remembered my new butterfly die from Simon Says Stamp and thought these colors were the palette for a kaleidoscope of butterflies.  To take it one step further, I embossed the butterflies using my go-to embossing folder – Swiss Dots.  What goes better with butterflies than flowers and these adorable peekers are the perfect addition to my card!

For whatever reason, I struggle with lots of white space.  I had my card almost done but I didn’t like all of the blank white space so I took my card apart and embossed the background and then matted my image – I love lots of layers and texture without getting too fussy.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for our color challenge, I can’t wait to see what you create – Dee
