Colour challenge with wings

Good morning friends on this last Tuesday of April.
We are in holiday mode here in South Africa, having had Freedom day yesterday and then on Friday another holiday, so many have taken off the days in between to have a mini holiday. The worst of these holidays is, one tends to forget what day it is.

It is definitely Tuesday and that means another colour challenge at The Outlawz.

Ina chose the beautiful photo for inspiration with the colours and the twist...something with wings.

Our sponsor for the last time this month is Enchanted Design Studio

The DT have made such gorgeous cards, you really need to pop over and see them. Hope you will come and join in this fun challenge.

I got the inspiration from hereFlowers, Ribbons and Pearls and this is my card with all the details below.

I started with purple card and then matted aqua card that I coloured with Distress inkpads. I then took watercolour paper and with the inkpads and water spritzed on it, used the 3 colours for the challenge.
The butterfly I stamped twice, on patterned paper, Embossed with gold. The aqua colour is from the paper and just added some purple to the butterfly, cut them out  and layered the one with 3D silicone The feelers I drew in with a metallic pen. Added glitter.
The sentiment was a free stamp in a magazine.
Finished off with pearls and a bow.
