A Rainbow of Butterflies

More play with watercolours and good Arches paper today. Whilst I still had the Penny Black butterflies on my desk I decided to use the smallest butterfly and this is the result.

I used various watercolours, included Daniel Smith and Gansai Tambai and was practising the glazing technique. I need lots of practise!!! Anyway it ended up a bright a cheery card. I added a very light grey watercolour to outline the butterflies. I had a HUGE mishap with the white paint pen I was using, with a big blotch, so I had to add blotches on all the butterflies lol!
Oh, the sentiment is from CASual Friday stamps.

I'm entering the following challenges:-
