Tutorial by Tomoko ...

 Tomoko has done a fabulous tutorial on how she gets that fabulous finish on her chipboard!

Paint the butterfly with white acrylic paint.
Paint the inside part with Shimmerz paint.(I used 2 colors for this to make some gradation.)

After the butterfly dries, apply some glitter over it. (I used some glitter paint from Turner Acrylic
Gouahe Lame' Clear Opac. But maybe we only have these in Japan. But, any glitter is okay. I prefer Modge Podge glitter if you have them:) )

After drying, I applied some distress ink for the center part of the butterfly using Prima mask. 

Use a black pen to write the patterns of the masked part.

Apply glossy accents in the center part and some rhinestones for accent.
