Strip Down #1

I haven't made it to my craft studio much in the last few weeks, but when I saw the Strip Down Challenge at One-Layer Simplicity Challenge, I just HAD to get there and make something. I have been zooming through some blogs here and there, and managed to watch pieces of Jennifer McGuire's Faux Textured Metal paper video, so I really wanted to try that out too.

I knew I was pushing the limit on the deadline, but as I love butterflies I was hoping to sneak it in to the CAS-ology Wings Challenge too, but it was dinner time, and I missed the deadline! I'm not sure my curvy lines count for the Strip Down challenge, and I didn't add texture to the shimmer on this one, but I love the effect.

A closer view of the lovely shimmer.
