I was needing a masculine thank you card, so a CAS sketch was perfect to do a little stenciling in the background and let this butterfly shine as the focal point...literally! I added Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron distress inks to an acrylic block, then picked up the colors with a wet brush and applied to Ranger watercolor CS. After drying with a heat gun, the butterfly was stamped 3 times using a MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I sprayed Mister Huey's Blizzard color shine over the butterfly to give it a nice subtle shimmer and shine! The butterfly was die cut then popped with foam tape over the Hero Arts Tweed Pattern stencil. The sentiment die - Wet Paint by PTI - was cut from black and white CS, then offset slightly when I layered them up. Stitched rectangle die is by Lil' Inker Designs.
I'm entering this into the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.
