CASology Challenge #252; CAS Mix Up - June Challenge

Hi there, blog friends ~
This post is the first of 2 for today...for my Addicted to CAS Challenge post, please go HERE.

My first card is for this week's challenge at CASology, and the theme is 'Insect'.




I stamped the sentiment and butterfly with Versafine and blended oxide inks to add color. The flourish was stamped with Grout Gray ink...a few clear sparkly sequins, and that was it!

***********************

My 2nd card is for the June Challenge at CAS Mix Up.




To meet the parameters of this challenge, I was so excited because I would get to use my Glass Bead Glitter Gel ~ It's so sparkly in person! I added a few drops of Salty Ocean DI to the gel to brighten the card and used Copic markers for the little girl (MFT stamp set - retired). I also added glossy accents to the apple for shine...and that was it!
For the challenge guidelines:
- Stamping - images and sentiment
- Glass Bead Gitter Gel
- My choice: Copic coloring 

Have a great weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

It's always fun to visit your blog, Barb! Two cards that both made me smile today...love them both! That butterfly is so pretty, and I really love the swirl flourish underneath it. The sweet little girl image reminds me of my little neices who are finishing school in the next few days. Both adorable! Thanks for playing along at CASology! Stay cool...NJ is pretty hot these days, right?!
