Less is More 58

Less is More Challenge 58 is a script challenge: use any text (in addition to the sentiment) on a one-layer card.  I chose to use this lovely Hero Arts butterfly with ferns stamp.  I do not know what language this is, but I do believe these characters qualify as text.  Hopefully Lady LIM and Diva LIM will agree. :)



I stamped the image using a homemade Lego positioner (Thank you, Chrissie!) before masking and sponging a little bit of color.  Then I colored the butterfly with Prismacolor pencils.  I also added some Sakura sparkle to the butterfly, which doesn't show in the photo. 

Supplies:
Paper: PTI white
Stamps: Hero Arts ferns and butterflies, PTI sentiment
Ink: Memories black
Other: Prismacolor pencils, Sakura clear star pen

This looks gorgeous Ann and script is script no matter what language it's in.
Super job!
Lego rocks as a stamp positioner doesn't it!
Thanks so much

What a cleaver idea, like the card style as well, don't often use this orientation but it looks fab.

Looks like the Japanese Hiragana script (but I'm no expert). This is a lovely image and a beautiful card.
