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.
