Copper Butterflies

A flutter of sapphire, copper, and white fractals in the shape of butterflies dance across a royal blue background, overlaid with copper framing and sparkling bright blue gems.

I wanted to try something metallic besides gold and silver, and I remember my high school Chemistry kit had a copper compound that was bright blue (azurite?), so I decided to try them together. Then these butterflies showed up fluttering across my screen and offered to pose for me, so here they are! Actually it's an Apophysis fractal that I thought looked like a butterfly. You have to have a good imagination working with fractals! This was also another attempt at drawing faceted gems.
