I'm in the northern hemisphere and chose cool colors.

The antennae on the center part and the leafy parts are over piped Isomalt transfers, but I made them too thin, and my clumsy fingers broke them a few times. Had to "glue" them back on with Isomalt and reinforce them on the back.

The idea to use flowers as the four wing parts and overall design are my own, but the leafy parts were inspired by different butterfly art works on the Internet as is the idea to make the butterfly body in the form of a female...

WOW! Sonja, what incredible detailed work and so creative I absolutely love your lady butterfly. Your attention to detail is always second to none and this is no exception. Your precise piping draws your eye in to see every single detail, no matter how small. The colors are gorgeous, too! Are all the swirly elements of the wings part of the cookie/s? Isomalt transfers? How you were able to create this masterpiece using isomalt as much as you did? I LOVE this design ♥♥♥

Also wondering about the overall size and what size tips you use for tiny details?

The overall size is a bit smaller than 30x30 cm. I don't use tips, but would guess between 0 and 1.

Thank you so much, Carol ❤️! The antennae and all swirly parts are Isomalt transfers and as such part of the cookies. I first outlined the transfers with royal icing, then filled them in drop by drop with Isomalt, and finally over piped them. Thanks again, Carol !

Amazing work! I could immediately tell it was yours  just by looking at the piped details! I love the design, mesmerizing as always...

Thanks so much, Manu ❤️! I know I'm over detailing a lot . It's just that the world disappears when I pipe, and that feels so darn good !

So beautiful!! It looks like embroidery brooch... I wonder how you're gonna keep this work of art..

Thanks so much, Noriko ❤️!!! I don't have experience with Isomalt over a long period of time. It seems very susceptible to air humidity. So it might not hold that long, but we shall see .
