Butterfly Challenge - Z is for zero and/or zuchini

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.  I have to get my skates on to enter Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge as there are only hours to go!  Here is my card, I have gone for zuchini (hues of yellow and green).

The stamp is a Claritystamp, carnations.  I decided to try a watercolour background starting from two shades of yellow, and going through to three shades of green, using my SU markers.  The carnations are also watercoloured.  I am not great at this, and I forget that the painting can be quite loose, but my inner tidy self says I must colour within the lines. :-)  The next photo shows the background  better I think.
I cut the butterflies from a scrap of the background.  Must dash and link up now.  See you soon.
