Molossi Mood Board challenge

I just realized I forgot to post my first take on the Molossi Mood Board challenge - squeaking it in before the deadline tomorrow! This card was directly inspired by that sweet blue butterfly:


Supplies: Paper Smooches leaf stamps; Martha Stewart butterfly stamp; PTI sentiment; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Versamark & black detail EP; distress inks in Salty Ocean & Peacock Feathers; Sharpie white paint pen & black; Tattered Angels glimmer mists in Sapphire Blue, Turquoise Blue, Blue Skies


I embossed the butterfly & painted it with the glimmer mists, and gave a light wash to the background as well. After drying, I added the leaf stamping, and the white paint pen dots to soften the dark edges around the butterfly. 
Here's the inspiration board:

Jessi
