CAS Mix Up Challenge - May 2018 - Gelatos or Crayons - Butterfly

Hello Friends,
For today I have another card for the CAS Mix Up May 2018.  I used Gold Metallic Gelato which I scribbled onto the card  and then used my fingers to smooth the colour around the page, I then did a second coat of colour when the first was dry smearing it with dampened fingers.  I placed a Stencil over the gold and wiped off some of the colour through the Stencil with a Baby Wipe, then I die cut the rectangle.  I die cut the Butterfly twice colouring one of the Butterflies with the Blue Gelato and layering them to give more definition.  The Blue and Gold Gelato pieces are very shiny, hope I have been able to catch this in my photo.
 Trying to show the shine from the Gold and Blue Metallic Celatos.
My Mix Up is Gelatos, Using a Stencil, Baby Wipe, Die Cuts and Stamping.
Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Create a Cupcake
Card: Thick and Thin Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: Faber Castell Metallic Gelatos - Gold and Blue, Tsukineko Delicata Gold

CAS Mix Up Challenge - May 2018 - Gelatos or Crayons - Chrysanthemum Birthday

Hi friends,
Today's post is for the CAS Mix Up Challenge for May. I used a Purple Metallic Gelato and an Always Artichoke Crayon which I mixed with Embossing Paste and layered it over the Chrysanthemum Flower Stencil. The Gelato kept it's vibrant colour and the Crayon didn't mix that well with the embossing paste but I like the textured look it created.  I raised the flower panel on Foam Tape and added the White embossed Sentiment and the Scallop edge.  I love how the flower turned out! 
My Mix Up is Stamping, Punched and Hand Cut Border, Mixed Gelato and Crayon with Embossing Paste, Used a Stencil and Heat Embossed.
