Welcome to the May 2022 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational image and colour challenge, you can use either part to create your project. Either
INK – use the colour challenge to create a project unrelated to the image -{There will generally be 5 colours for the colour challenge you may use some or all colours plus Stampin’ Up! basics range (black, white, vanilla) or
INSPIRATION – use the image subject as inspiration for your project any way you can tie them together is fine. This is the beautiful image for this month:

I chose to use the colours, and this is my card:

I used the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set heat embossed the butterflies with black embossing powder. I used a spare piece of paper to cut out the butterflies with the
Brilliant Wings dies, and then used it as a mask. I paced it over my embossed image, and using my blending brushes applied the different colour inks.

  1. Tracy, what a beautiful card! Great idea to heat emboss the butterfly brilliance stamp set and then add different colors using blending brushes. I’ll have to give it a try as I love this bundle.
