This is the latest in my learning how to do FSL embroidery. This is a 3D butterfly done in variegated thread. I wanted to see how it would look if instead of doing the "veins" of the wings in one color and the "edging " in another , if I would just do the whole thing in the variegated thread. I used mother of pearl organza for the "fabric" inside the wings. I just put the organza between two pieces of wss, and then when it was done trimmed close to the edges, and soaked out the wss. When I have some time I will do it again doing it the way the design states to do it.
This one is already being used for the decoration on a birthday present, and will be going to it's new home sometime this week.
