Inkspirational #160

Hi there everyone. It's time for a brand new challenge over at Inkspirational

We have a beautiful colour challenge this fortnight - we would like you to use purple and gold!

Here is my card -

I embossed my butterflies with gold powder and die cut them out. I used Zig Makers to watercolour them. I have layered them over each other and popped up a couple using foam tape.

I also embossed my sentiment. A last minute decision was to add some Aged Wine Embossing Enamel but I'm not sure it was really the right thing to do but after adding the few sequins, I quite like the effect.

This card is going to my Mum for Mother's Day :)

Supplies Used:


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Sunny Day Crafting - Butterflies and other Garden Critter
Eclectic Ellapu - Mother's Day

Thanks for popping in and I would love to see you over at the challenge blog.


  1. You know I am doing a happy dance over this card. I love it-just perfection. The different shades of purple work so well and with the gold....on my! I do like that background-is it brushos? And I like the sentiment is that colour. One of my fav cards x

  2. Such a vibrant and eye catching card. Love those beautiful butterflies and love the aged wine enamel powder on the background...I think it sets off your card beautifully x

  3. You already know my response to your gorgeous kaleidoscope of butterflies: swooning! Big swooning! The enamel powder adds a special touch; great decision to add it, along with the sequins (I'm sequin challenged...can never figure out how to place them without having them look like an 'after-thought').

  4. Beautiful card, Kylie. The purple and gold design is so striking. xx

  9. A beautiful card, Kylie! I love the gorgeous shades of purple against the heat embossed gold. What an elegant look! The splatter is just the right finishing touch along with the sequins.
