I need a hand project!

My mother taught me to embroider when I was about 5. She tried to teach me to crochet, but I did not have the manual dexterity to manipulate the hook. I still love to embroider! When I need a hand project, especially one to carry around, I look to embroidery.
I designed a butterfly, I need to be able to see the line so I chose to mark the fabric with a thin brown Micron Pigma pen.

Laying down a layer of white crayon first aids in the coloring process later.

Coloring the butterfly with crayons would simplify the embroidery process. No need to change the thread color.

Now I just need to decide on the thread: Traditional black floss?

This lush hand dyed purple rayon? Hummmm!
