Rainbow butterflies

I am experimenting with my new dies and was inspired by a post on outside the box using butterflies though not this die.

I used fairyland butterflies by memory box and drew around the butterflies once they were cut in pencil, I then used promarkers in the colours of the rainbow to colour each of the butterflies in turn. There are 6 butterflies on the die so I cut an extra one so I had 7.

I added some sparkle using sakura glitter gel pen and attached each butterfly to the coloured areas cutting them from the one die separating them .
I think it gives a totally different look to when they are all joined together.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Graphit markers- spring delights

Alphabet challenges-B is for butterflies

Curtain call -rainbows

Oddball challenge-watchin' rainbows

Craft rocket-anything goes

Jades crafting butterflies- anything dies/use die cuts
