Lepidopteras

I finished the watercolor display I made for my son Daniel's b-day.
The top picture is lit from the back...
I put it against a sunny window
and I love how the butterflies appear to be glowing.
This other picture was lit from the front.
Now all it needs is a nice shadow box frame.

these are so beautiful. I would love to wear one as a pin . Have you thought about printing them , laminating and turning them into pins or pendants like yaelfran (ref to her etsy shop) does. I think alot of your readers would snap them up.
