Butterfly and Roses Just Because...Inkspirational Challenge #112~Colour Challenge: Anything Goes with Red

Hello,

And here we are...in July...and I am on summer holidays! Woo hooooo!

Today, our talented Guest Designer, Kajcyika, my super amazing DT and I, invite you to Inkspirational Challenge #122:


Red...vibrant, passionate, striking...I love red!  See....


I drew inspiration from cards found here, infusing the design with my own products (STAMplorations Old Rose Prints stencil, Concord and 9th Flutter die and a Clearly Besotted sentiment) and little special touches.  Can you believe that I actually used vellum! Me...vellum! Amazing! 

Want to see more sparks of creativity and inspiration? Then please visit my sweet team-mates to see their red wonders.  If you have a moment, leave them some love:


Turning the stage over to you!

Looking forward to your ravishing "Anything Goes with Red" designs in the
gallery! Awesome about to unfold!

Fabulous Stencil background!!! And that delicate butterfly - such a wonderful contrast. Love that you have doubled him up!

Brenda said...

Yay for summer vacation! And WOW! I too, love red. It's flirty, it's vibrant, it's a fun color. And your red roses are divine! Did you ink them through the stencil? They just are amazing, and to tell you the truth, I love your card more than the inspirational card! The vellum is awesome and I love the tag die with the beautiful butterfly die on it. Yep, this is a fabulous, elegant card Carol! Hugs, Brenda

That piece of vellum was the perfect choice on this card! Love that doubled up butterfly landing on the tag amidst the bold red background (softened by the vellum)!

Something is amiss in cyberland because this pretty never showed up in my mailbox! So glad that I scrolled a bit further because this card is stunning! The velum panel rocks this design...it creates a ka-pow bold contrast between the rich red and the softness of the paper!
