This is a piece I did for a forum challange. We had to select a colour pallet from http://www.colourlovers.com/blog/2007/06/01/colorful-beauty-in-nature-butterflies/ . I had a piece of this lovely azurite malichite stone that I cut to size and polished. I though it was a perfect fit with the Mr. Geen Butterfly colour pallet. I have never spent so much time planning and working on a piece before. This definitely was a challenge for me and I am happy to say I won 1st Place in the Butterfly Theme Category and 1st Place in the Creativity of Overall Design Category as well as being the over all Grand Prize Winner!
