Positive Inkers Global Design Team - Splash of Colour...

Brilliant Wings

Hi and welcome to another amazing blog hop from the Positive Inkers Global Design Team.

The theme of this month's hop is 'A Splash of Colour'.  I thought about this for a while and thought of splash, as in water, colour as in a single colour and a splash of colour maybe black and white with a bright contrast colour!  Then my mind wandered back to the word 'splash' and I couldn't get it out of my head so I l have taken it quite literally and created a 'splash' of colour on to some Vellum cardstock to create an interesting background.

I mixed up some Polished Pink reinker with a little alcohol and splashed it on to a piece of Vellum cardstock.  I let it dry for a while, it takes a bit longer as the ink is water based but once dry, I did the same, this time with Fresh Freesia ink.  Once both layers had dried I mixed up a little Whisper White ink with a drop of water and splattered this across the background.  Again I allowed it some time to dry and placed it under a heavy object for a short while to prevent it from curling.

I cut the Vellum using our Basic Borders dies and adhered it to a Thick Basic White card base.  I added some ribbon and a sentiment which I have taken from the Sweet as a Peach dies.

Finally, I cut a butterfly using the Brilliant Wings dies from Basic Black cardstock and covered it in Wink of Stella.  I attached it to my card front along with some 2021-2023 In Color Gems to complete.

I love playing with colour and ink so it was a lovely challenge.  I cannot wait to see how the rest of the Design Team have interpreted this theme!
