Metallic Butterfly


Hello All,

For today I am entering challenges for Sunday Stamps, CAS Mix Up, and CAS(E) this Sketch. The metallic details on this butterfly are amazing! Thank you CAS Mix Up for posting the videos for ideas on how to do this technique. Anyway, here is my card for today. Enjoy!

I wanted to bring an industrial feel to this card. I brick PP as a backdrop for my butterfly because the butterfly reminds me of an old rusty object. Yet the butterfly is dainty and so pretty.
This is a detailed shot of one of the butterfly's wings. The look of rust over the beautiful blue is so pretty! Pictures can't really do it justice. So below I have attached a short video clip of the butterfly to show how metallic and beautiful it is to see.
 

Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #347

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.
