Dreams .....

Still playing with charcoal.....
Thrilled to have got a Win with this card from Stamplorations - CAS challenge..Thank you x
 This card was initially a little longer but after doing the third butterfly, 
through the stencil, it leaked underneath!
So...... the charcoal gradient isn't so gradient!
I used black paste for the butterflies and once it was dried popped on 
Liquid Chrome.
This stuff is super shiny and covers really well.
Finished off with the NBUS sentiment, silver washi tape and a few sequins.
