HLS February Mixed Media Challenge - Paint

Hello everyone! This is my first post for the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge. The theme for this month is paint.

Mixed Media Card with Happy Little Stampers Butterfly Birthday Stamps
For my card I first created a quick background by applying some thinned down peeled paint distress paint with a flat brush. Once it dried I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment on top of it, both the stamps are from the HLS Butterfly Birthday stamp set. I colored in the butterfly with Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional paint with a paint brush and dabbed it with a piece of tissue to create some fun texture. I finished the card with some black soot distress paint splatters and a few sequins.
