Butterfly Heart

This heart is truly an experiment with color contrast. I used the main colors of the print (shades of pink to dark maroon and shades of yellow) to make a very bold heart. The threads are all perl cottons which adds to the boldness. The Fargo roses at the top have seed beads in between them.

I like doing this kind of heart every now and then. It's like singing really loud and maybe off-key but you don't care because it makes you feel soooo good. I'm afraid the scanned photos just doesn't do it justice I think it much prettier in person.

Hello!
I have been thinking of you - long time since you've posted. It's good to see you're back to doing some of your beautiful work. The hearts are all wonderful - don't think I can pick a favorite...
Good to 'see' you again.

I think it's a beautiful heart! I like the almost monochromatic look of it and the contrast of the bright golds.

I like your boldness! Doesn't it make you feel really good when you do something 'off key' like that.
