About three weeks ago I decided to do the SCS CAS challenge and also one of the colour choices from the five offered for the 700th celebration of SCS Colour Challenge thread.
About the same time I came down with a very nasty and virulent flu like virus that laid low both DH and I and still is. I was going to submit it for the SCS WT702 challenge but missed that too so here it is just to look at.
It's a one sheet card that I measured up the borders with a ruler and pencil then stamped the butterflies and masked, then masked the borders with post it notes and artists tape using the pencil lines as a guide.
Once masked I sponged the ink on, fading it out a little towards the top.
When I was happy with the coverage I spritzed the blended panel with my favourite glitter mist made with Perfect Pearls Biscotti and water in a mini mister. I also took the top off the mister and flicked some larger drops onto the panel from the mister tube.
Once this was done I took all the masking off and coloured the butterflies. I heat embossed the greeting and finally added some glitter to the round markings on the butterflies applying some glue from a glue pen, first to the centres and adding some rainbow black glitter then once this was dry added more glue to the outer circles and then diamond glitter.
To finish off I added some white insert paper with little bugs stamped along the bottom and that's basically it.
