The Swallowtail stamp is BIG stamp, background stamp size big! It is another stamp I could not resist. To start the creative process off I CASED(copy and share everything) the sample that's in the Occasions catalog. I added just a few extra thing to change it up ever so slightly.
Stamps: Swallowtail, Loving Thoughts
Paper: Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit
Extras: Pool Party Embossing powder, Enbossing Buddy, Pool Party ribbon(Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack), Champagne Mist Shimmer paint, Stampin Spritzer, Aqua Painter
On page 19 of the Occasions catalog there are directions on how to make the card. I loved painting on the Champagne Mist to the embossed butterfly image. The butterfly just glows! I also spritzed the Champagne Mist/alcohol solution all over the Summer Starfruit card stock and it makes for a beautiful shimmery image.
I will be sharing more of the Swallowtail stamp in the coming weeks. It is a beautiful inage and am looking forward to trying different coloring techniques on it.
