IA Challenge: Butterflies

I'm so glad I had a chance to play along with the Inspiration Challenge this week. The subject chosen by Hettienne is Butterflies! Here is my interpretation of a french beaded monarch butterfly. I made it into a plant stick.
This was so much fun! Thanks, Hettienne.

Have a wonderful, creative weekend everyone!
Please stop by on Sunday & see all the other entries here.

What an awesome entry. You have the patience of Job to make this, Debbie. And I see what you mean now, by your comment to me about wings being different colors. I have to admit, this is the most awesome (and detailed) plant stick I've ever seen.

Wow!! This is awesome! So painstakingly perfect. Each entry is just getting more and more inspirational! After this week I will be creating butterflies in my studio for a week. Thank you for taking part in our IA challenge!

I can feel spring already! This would make a nice brooch for a scarf, hat or a simple black shirt or dress.

Thank you all for the lovely comments!

I've made these into brooches before & even make a few large ones to adorn a vintage lamp an antique dealer was attempting to sell.
