An intriguing challenge

I was blog-hopping this afternoon, and found this Less is More challenge on Rosemary's blog.  The challenge is called "Pick a Square".  This is a CAS challenge, and we are to use this sketch, but use ONLY ONE of the squares in it.


I chose to use the bottom right square and 2 digital images from Vinnie Pearce (her mini Dream Kit).  I used one of her digital papers, this impressionistic meadow, and added the butterfly.  After printing it out, I then stamped my sentiment, curving it to resemble the butterfly's trail.  

































supplies: white cardstock, Vinnie Pearce digital Dream kit, My Sentiments Exactly M112 Sentiment Stems, versafine onyx black ink, clear gemstones

Really different, isn't it?  I would never have thought of doing anything like this, but that's why I love new challenges; they stretch us in ways we sometimes never imagine.  Go and look at the gallery for this challenge if you want to see some imaginative work!
