Square Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

Hi all!

I have to admit, I follow tons of blogs...but this week, I've absolutely LOVED Moxie Fab's challenges. If you aren't familiar w/the website, click here. This is one of the featured sketches this week.

I hadn't really done a card like this--much less a square--so I thought it'd be fun to join in the fun. And with homeschooling back in full effect next week, why not milk the small bit of extra time I do have?! :)

Here's my take:

I started out w/white cardstock and I stamped the butterfly in black soot distress ink. The butterfly is one of my favorite stamps and it's from Hero Arts, I think. Then I stamped the butterfly again on a separate piece of paper and heat embossed the image. I took my Broken China and Chipped Sapphire distress inks and colored in the butterfly. Then, I cut it out and adhered it w/dimensional adhesive. I then squirted a bit of water onto my mat and used a paintbrush to blend the colors just a bit more. Once it was dry, I added the pearls and stamped the sentiment (which is from the dollar bin at the Craft Warehouse). Done! :)

Hope you can play along...and thanks for the comments--they brighten up my day! :)
