Wishing You a Perfect Day

Hi everyone! 
This is my 2nd post today. For my Lawnscaping Challenge card, please scroll down, or click Here.

The focus yesterday and today in CAS3 card class was about adding textural effects to a CAS card. Debby Hughes created a card with heat embossing, Copic coloring, embossing paste and a whole lotta Wink of Stella clear glitter! While I try not to make the identical card as the instructors, I had almost all of the supplies to CASE her beautiful card, so that’s what I did.  




I created a stencil with my SSS Falling Stars die with clear acetate for the embossing paste, and masked off the butterfly and sentiment before applying it. I used Copics to color the butterfly, and gold embossing powder on a teeny-tiny circle stamp to create the gold spatters. For the turquoise spatters, I used an old bottle of Glimmer Mist, which added a lot a shimmer to the card...Here’s a close-up of all that yummy sparkle:




I would like to enter this card in this week’s Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp ~ “Glitter It", and to this week's challenge "Make Your Mark" at Addicted to Stamps & More as well as this week's Less is More Challenge - Masking or Stenciling. Thanks so much for stopping by...I really appreciate your sweet comments!
