The Make My Monday Challenge is Dragonflies and Butterflies and here’s a card I made with a little flutterby on it.
I was wanting to try recreating a rainbow, so I tried it with inks, using only 3 colours – red, blue and green.  There isn’t much blue, but you can still see a bit of it.

I stamped over it, then embossed but because I used watercolour paper, the paper stayed wet and it’s embossed all over, so I had to use white pen to colour.  My Promarkers were downstairs and I didn’t want to come hunt for them.

Can’t believe this is the last post of the month.  Who stole January??

You did a perfect job by creating your rainbow. I can almost see the pot of gold.
The card looks beautiful and I will try out the saying when I need it.
To uncolour the flowers to white, you can also use a tiny bit of chloor (I did it with my Christmas cards), but maybe you knew this already.
Love Gery
