#9. As an
after thought I added a butterfly element (added a 3D drop shadow)
duplicated it 2 times so that I would have 3 layers of it..
I started with
Noise setting of 15%, 17% then 18% on each of the butterfly
palette should look like this

have one layer of butterfly showing and one of the Mask layers
showing..the duplicates hid.

Now over in PSP
