Optical Illusion - Butterflies so close

Today's "CAS Card"

Hey everyone. Another CAS-3 one layer card here. So I masked off the square area. I then took this Tim Holtz buildings stamp and stamped it on the edge of the mask. I then stamped a building mask to go over top of the buildings for part 2. For part 2 I placed the building's mask and placed it over the place I stamped the buildings. I then took and inked around the buildings with chipped sapphire, faded jeans, and broken china. I took my water brush to move the colour around a bit and I like that effect. Lastly I stamped these butterflies and the "enjoy the journey" with versa mark and then embossed it with this bronze embossing powder. I was supposed to be going for a optical illusion with the butterflies close and the buildings in the background and I think it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
