Pearlescent Pink

I bought this beautiful pearlescent pink thread while Flutterbys was still in the early planning stage. I thought that it would be perfect for imitating the shimmering, colour shifting qualities of a butterfly's wings.

Here I have combined it with pale pink flat silk to stitch diagonal foundation on the Pink Ladies fore wing.

You probably already know this but if you click on any of the pictures, you get an enlarged view which not only shows the details more clearly, but all of the mistakes as well.

Happy Stitching
