In search of the right background

I'm still playing with backgrounds...Here's one possibility...

I like this multi-colored one, but this is only a swatch blown up from an online fabric site, so it's hard to guess what it will look like in reality:

This is too pale.

I may just have to take the wing to my local shop and wander around...


  1. Out of the options you pictured, I like the bright green one the best. The color is complimentary and there isn't a lot of texture to take away from the wing pattern. That is one of my favorite greens too, so I'm certainly biased. I also love insect wings.

  2. I have to agree with Sonji, the green really works with the orange in the wing :-) I love the middle fabric, but I don't think it is best for your butterfly :-)

  3. I really like the top green one. It makes it "pop" more to me.

  4. Of the backgrounds you pictured I definitely vote for green (my favorite color). But I still like the idea of blue, if you can find the right one. A trip to the fabric store with wing in hand sounds like a great idea.

  5. ditto on the green!
