I began the month with this set of butterfly dies and I wanted to have another play with them again.
supplies: white and black cardstock, orange and green patterned paper, Spellbinders Stitched Glimmer Butterflies, a gold/orange variegated embroidery floss, Mini Blooms and Sprigs (tiny leaves), Petite Floral Potpourri (tiny posies), sentiment from Simon Joys of Spring, spiced marmalade oxide ink, pearls
I think I had mentioned in an earlier post that I inherited a nice selection of embroidery floss from my Mom; among them are several skeins of variegated flosses, which I have never used before. So I chose this bright sunny one and stitched the butterfly wings, then built the rest of the card around it, adding some tiny flowers. Here's a closer look at the butterfly only. This shows you the shades of floss, and the teensy flowers.
And this color is a nice lead-in to the coming summer months! Thanks for your visit today!
Beautifully done, Lin! The colors are wonderful!
just gorgeous. Love variegated thread and it looks stunning on your butterfly
Oooohhhh Lin this is so beautiful - love the variegations in the thread, and the tiny flowers are the perfect touch
