CASology #206 ART

This is my CAS ART card for CASology: Week 206 ART Challenge.  So many Gorgeous CAS ART cards by the talented Design Team.  I was inspired to use my STAMPlorations "ART IS" Stamp Set that has 6 pieces relating to ART!  I also used my ARTplorations "Shower of Flutters" Stencil Mask for my main image and my new CUTplorations "Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die" for the border.

I made some shimmer spray using water and Frost White Shimmer Paint in a mini mister and sprayed the entire card front.  It really Shimmers IRL.  I did take a Close Up to try to capture the Shimmer.

I used a blending tool to sponge SU Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach onto my stencil mask then spritzed with water and placed on my Strathmore 140# Mixed Media paper using a paper towel to press down on the back of the inked stencil for good ink coverage.  I lifted off the stencil and used a wet paint brush to move the ink around each butterfly.  I loved how the 2 colors blended and the light and dark effect on each butterfly.

I then Die cut my border, stamped my sentiment with SU Archival Basic Gray ink using my MISTI.  Added a bit of WASHI tape for balance and attached to my SU Whisper White Thick  tent fold Card Base....and Voila' quick and easy CAS ART card done.

My card is for several challenges....
