More Butterflies and H2O paints ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was good and your week has started well.  I have loads of chores (not crafty, boo!) that I need to attempt this week so I won’t be blogging as much as I would like.  I will have some news to share soon, as well as more projects ready to be blogged and projects I need to work on but can’t share or hint at yet.
Once again the butterflies on were created from one of my mixed media experiments on A4 card with white acrylic paint.  If you want to know how I created them then the details are here
The background for this butterfly card was created with just water and H2O paints.  I added a ‘coat’ of water and then added H2O’s in pink and blue.  Once again I was experimenting and this time it was for me to see how far the H2Os spread or bleed out.  BTW I love it and will be doing more of these backgrounds!
Anyways today I have another card to share and here it is …

I do have an obsession for this size and fold at the moment! 
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
