Exotic Butterflies by pinkythepink Exotic Butterflies by pinkythepink
Edit 8/4/14: Finally updated this photo!

It seems I have an unhealthy obsession with these insects.

Finished within the past couple weeks. Scanning it didn't bring out the colors very well. May have to retake this image with a camera. Still need to iron/stretch/whatever.

Learned a new stitch for the bodies. Gives the whole piece an awesome 3D look.

This is a Dimensions Gold kit.

Color Total: 23
Size: 7 x 5 inches
Time: 34 1/2 hours
18 Count navy Aida

I would much rather have a collection of these kind of insects, stitched as they are, than the dead ones in a box (however pretty they might be). Very cool! I love how they fly beyond the border/frame!

I agree entirely :love: I have some framed butterflies that were gifted to me when I was really little and even though they're so pretty if I think about it too much it creeps me out. XD

Praise be to Dimensions for designing it that way :happybounce: I'm going to use the effect in future pieces for sure!

Thank you. :) My favorite (though you can't really tell in the scan) is that large centerpiece one, it has iridescent filament all over the wings and makes it so pretty in the light. :)
