Butterfly Headboard

After cutting out the butterfly from an otherwise failed acrylic painting in an effort to salvage it, I've been spending a couple afternoons painting some little butterfly friends for it in order to decorate the head of my bed,which you may have noticed in the background of my YouTube videos. They aren't exactly perfect looking and they do get a tiny bit in the way when I'm laptop-ing in bed, leaning against my headboard, but I'm rather chuffed with how they've turned out and I think they go quite well with the floral theme of my feature wall. I imagine I'll make a few more in the holidays and they'll end up taking over my headboard so there may be some more pictures in a few weeks as my headboard evolves. Do you think I should keep adding to my butterflies? I'll almost definitely replace the purple one at any rate - it didn't turn out too well and just looks odd next to the others.
