5 Red and Purple Butterfly Images
If you’re looking for some fun vintage Butterfly images (and actually some may be Moths) to use in your next crafting project or just to decorate your home, then look no further! Here are a few of my favorite red and purple butterflies. They are perfect for all sorts of crafty projects, from scrapbooking layouts to homemade greeting cards! And I’m sure you will come up with your own ideas as well. Enjoy these beautiful summer insects and happy crafting!
Purple Butterfly Illustrations
This beautiful winged creature was scanned from an 1840’s Natural History book. It has lovely, and interesting, 2 toned wings! The upper wings have a gray marbled look to them and the lower wings are black, with a bright lavender stripe on them. So striking!
This lovely Vintage Purple Butterfly Image is quite a simple design, but still very nice! This one comes from a Circa 1863 German Natural History Butterflies and Moths Book. I think it has a great Bohemian style look to it! I love the soft Lavender Color of this beautiful Insect.
Red Butterfly Pictures
Here we have the mate to the purple one that we saw above. This guy has the same lovely gray marbled wings on top, but on the bottom he has a bright red and black combination on his wings, instead of the purple combo that we saw on the other one. They would look quite charming together on coordination projects I think!
This is a gorgeous Victorian Scrap piece! I’m not sure if it’s a Butterfly or a Moth, but I love the colors either way! This one has a lot of gold on it, which I know doesn’t print well, but I thought it would be fun to take a gold metallic pen and go over the gold lines, to make it sparkle! He’s quite a showy specimen.

Sorry about that! They are fixed now. Thanks for letting us know! 🦋
These are all very nice! I wish we had these colourful butterflies in our area – I’ve only seen peach, white and yellow ones the most. I can’t pick a favourite – they are all so pretty! It’s like seeing a cardinal bird every once in a while – not often but when we do, it’s an experience!!
Thanks for sharing these with us!! Have a wonderful week and keep safe!!

Thank you Irene! I feel the same way. Occasionally we see a Monarch or Swallow tail around here, and it’s always such a treat! 🦋
