CAS Mixup - Warm Wishes

Hello Everyone,

A fun time is currently happening at CAS Mixup October Challenge to use Stamping, Layer Stenciling plus choice.

For my card I did the following and incorporated Stamping, Layer Stenciling, Dry and Heat Embossing, Masking, Die-cutting
-- used negative of butterfly die-cut for stencil
-- the overlay stencil was created by using 3 cuts of a Snowdrifts Coverup Die and randomly arranging 
-- used Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral) to dab/blend through the overlay stencil until the desired color was achieved
-- the overlay stencil was removed and the butterfly was ink blended using Spiced Marmalade (Distress Ink)
-- a bubble stencil was aligned over the spine of the butterfly and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink was blended down the spine of the butterfly
-- the butterfly was masked and a few more Peacock Feather colored bubbles were added
-- the detailed butterfly die cut was used to emboss the butterfly
-- the sentiment was stamped in black and heat embossed with clear EP
-- for a little sparkle a few of the bubbles were lightly painted with clear WOS

Hope you're having an enjoyable day ... thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
