My Butterfly (Mi Mariposa) Mask

I finished another Day of the Dead mask yesterday!  I was inspired by the Mariposa Skeletons so I gave this one a butterfly mask.

I drew the butterfly freehand and then painted it in with Golden Fluid Acrylics.

I layered my colors until I was happy with all of the shading and highlights then added all of the white dots.  I think they're what really bring the butterfly to life.

Originally I thought that I was going to use magenta as my accent color but then I changed my mind.  So that's why there is a single magenta flourish.   The rose I used is by Stampendous.

I added my signature flourishes all around.  I felt like I hadn't flourished in a while, lol.

I punch holes on the sides then install a grommet to add the satin ribbon for hanging.

And there you have it, Mi Marisposa (My Butterfly)!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a FABULOUS holiday weekend!!!
