Masking Tutorial - May the Wings of the Butterfly

Yogi here today with another CAS card.

I side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h)

I die cut the butterflies (Sizzix Tim's On The Edge die "Butterflight") from Tim's adhesive backed Masking material. Used the negative of the mask and then inserted the cut apart butterflies and sponged one butterfly at a time with Distress Festive Berry, Mustard Seed, Broken China. Removed the positive butterflies and stamped the "Bonne Fete" and "Happy Birthday" through the mask, using Versafine Black Onyx. While the mask was in place, used a black Micron pen to outline the butterflies.

Removed the negative mask. Stamped the "Bonne FĂȘte" in the bottom section and clear embossed it.

Put the positive butterflies down, putting a small piece of tape where I had cut them apart. Sponged with a dirty purple sponge that had the Picked Raspberry on it, then added Shaded Lilac and Broken China.

Stamped the quote "May the Wings" with the black and clear embossed.

As a final touch, put a bit of Quickie Glue in the small butterfly and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter in gold.
