For my card, I blended shades of teal and magenta with some black and then did a little shimmer splattering for some fun detail.  Then layered up this gorgeous die cut from Lil'Inker Desigsn with about 4 layers so it had some nice solid dimension to it.  Adhered that to my blended panel and then worked on the rest of the details.

I think I spun in circles over how to get the butterflies to look nice on this card panel.  White embossing didn't look very nice...they just didn't pop all that well.  So I tried adding color on top...coloring in the back with copics...using pearl embossing powder...nothing seemed to work. 

Usually I avoid black embossing powder because it can be pretty messy and not give a crisp result.  But I decided to give it a shot because I just needed to find a solution.  And it worked!  It was so stunning, I had to use them!  So I embossed up a couple more butterflies in black and trimmed them out.

I cut out a heart to be my focal point for the sentiments.  From the same Beautiful Wings set, I took out the little flower and used a 4th generation stamping with some Worn Lipstick Oxide ink.  I wanted it to be super light but since it was black cardstock, I needed to use a pigment ink.  So it took the 4th generation to get it light enough to be just noticeable but not take over the whole card.  I did mist it just a little with some water to help brighten it a tiny touch.

Then I layered up my sentiments and arranged my butterflies.  Love this card so so much!!!

I hope you will join us for this challenge!  Give this gorgeous color combo a shot.  Just remember to use a Newton's Nook product!

Thanks so much for visiting! <3
