Love this Swallowtail!

So I had to buy the Swallowtail stamp from Stampin up!  It is a _huge detailed stamp that I’ve seen amazing cards done with.  If you’re interested in this stamp, please check out Splitcoaststamper.com Gallery for ideas!

I was trying to compete in a Freshly Made Sketch challenge, but time got away from me and I didn’t submit it in time.  However I had to make this card!

So first I cute the base card in Island Indigo.  Then I pulled paper from Sycamore Street DSP with all types of colors in it.  It really inspired me like the flowers this summer. I reached for my Swallowtail stamp and knew I only wanted to stamp 1/2 of it, like the butterfly had landed on my card to take a nap.

I stamped the Swallowtail image in Versa Mark and then used black embossing powder to really make the detail stand out.  Using my Aqua painter I colored the butterfly with coordinating colors from the Sycamore DSP – Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petal and Rich Razzleberry.  I cut a piece of Vellum, used the D’vine Swirl embossing folder and ran it thru the Cuttlebug.  This piece lightened the DSP behind and really makes the Swallowtail stand out!  I wrapped the card with Summer Starfruit stitched ribbon so the knot looks almost like the antenna of the butterfly.

I love the look of this card!  Bright colors and amazing detail with the Swallowtail.  I can’t wait to see what else I can make with this stamp!

Have a Magical Day!
