Description:

Floral based on S43, with a 3-way flower colouring and superimposed / excluded circle-arc butterflies.

Floral based on a variant of the inverse of the semi-regular S43433 grid/lattice, adjusted for perfect pentagons and with a 3-way flower colouring applied, plus superimposed/excluded circle-arc butterflies. Currently displaying a version using the restricted palette of the butterfly contest. Other sizes and colour schemes are available on request and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.
* The butterfly is the uncoloured element and the one without any outline, floating serenely over the underlying pattern liike a negative shadow. (The title also references a shop slogan and band name.)

sef says: And the new print profile changes everything around again! The dark green is even darker (nearly black) but the blue has brightened up a lot.

sef says: Having now seen the printed version in person (rather than Spoonflower's palette sample photo online), and just how dark the blue really is, I've swapped around the colours for the 2 and 3 colour versions to keep it away from the dark green. It still works the other way round (in as much as this particular palette works at all!), and is generally brighter with the paler green (which prints even lighter) as the main foliage colour, but you tend not to see the outline around the blue flower.

sef says: I got past caring in the end. So I left it in after all. <br> <br>The shapes between the flowers are designed to be able to be dressed up as foliage - with leaf veins. But having initially done it that way, I didn't like the look of it as much as the plain version (my drives are probably completely the opposite of a normal person's!). Hence you never got to see that style uploaded at all.

weaving...

weavingmajor says: ooh, hooray, I'm so glad you entered this one! I liked the colors in the two-flower-color version, but it oversimplified the pattern into a basket-weave of short diagonal stripes. In this one the pattern seems so much more delightfully complex. And I love (in both of them but much more apparent here) the Maltese cross sort of shapes you get between the flowers.

sef says: Hmm. I've always liked the grid (balancing the needs of the flowers, foliage and flutterbys is harder!) but I'm still not happy about the contest colours. I was thinking of withdrawing this entry and replacing it with one I didn't get round to rendering earlier but which better reduces the clashes.

weaving...

weavingmajor says: this is really nice - I think it's my favorite of all you've made to date. I love how the butterfly shapes interact with the five-petaled flowers - makes for some really nice motion in the design.
