I think I used a 0 for the white highlights and probably just a 4 round for the black lines/teardrops and dots.

At least your butterfly doesn't always seem to have a fallopian tube incorporated in it...



This one was particularly bad because I was so desperate to finish, I forgot the body and antennae...fortunately, my daughter thinks I'm the bomb so she was oblivious to her anatomically non-existent butterfly-thing Embarassed

Lovely blending though Razz (Seriously, LJ, that just looks like a fab eye design - who needs antennae?!)

What colours did you use?

Thanks Kristal! Blending is my thing ...that and fallopian tubes.
I think it was Snaz: Spkl Blue (light) and metallic purple or spkl lilac... maybe some pink (dark) a well. Can't remember, but judging from my kit, that's what they would have to be...

Hey Marindas! I have to say again that I love your butterfly in your avatar! It's gorgeous and so unique! It makes me smile everytime I see you post Smile

Most of these were inspired from Daisy's butterflies on her Facebook gallery Smile I decided I like making half face butterflies. They are easier for me. Razz

Alright Ladies...Today was Butterfly Day at a birthday party...!
Gosh I painted around 20 of them all the same...(including my avatar now) I was so sick of looking at the other I had to change it. lol!
Here are some that I painted today. Right out of my head, cuz I didn't have these on my board. I have seen them somewhere else, can't remember exactly where...Constructive Criticism is welcome!

Fantastic!

I wouldn't fix a thing Smile

I'm planning on stocking up pink, purple, and a teal for this month. Do tell about that teal? Is it two shades?

Thanks so much, I feel more confident now..I still have to work with my lines but I feel that I made a big improvement...
The teal is Kryolan, and I blend it with wolfe metallic green. (on the second butterfly)
On the first one I use Paradise teal.
I love Kryolan teal, love its consistency, I can work it real good with a little water..too bad a kid grabbed it behind my back and stuck his little finger on it, messed it up bad, plus a huge chunk stayed on his finger..What a waste.
I had to stop painting, called the birthday girl mom and told her that I couldn't keep painting ,they have to keep this kid away from my table. Of course no mom around..he kept on bumping my chair, running behind me, grabbing things..etc..kid was a nightmare.. Mad
FORGOT ONE MORE THING...
My challenge now is flowers...love those rose buttons , little roses and I have to master those flowers using flat brushes and arty cakes.. Very Happy

If you really want to make a butterfly POP, I find putting a lighter color at the inner corner of the eye & fading out to a darker color works wonders.

Here is a few quick butterflies that I do. Very fast designs...




I have some others that are more ornate but I use these for line work. This is my number one girl request other than my fairy rose princess and dragons.
