I love the ‘Swallowtail’ stamp in the current Seasonal Catalogue. It is a large stamp but the detail in the image is beautiful and although it is big it can create some really “arty” cards. I have been playing around with it a little recently. Here is one card which has been really popular with my customers. This card was inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers.
For this card I sponged the stamp firstly with Island Indigo inkpad in the centre of the butterfly. To do this I just picked up some ink on my dauber and dabbed directly on the stamp. Then I daubered on Lucky Limeade ink towards the outside of the wings and then right on the edges of the wings I daubered on Pool Party. I love the gradation of colours. I am so going to miss these colours in a couple of months. I adhered the white card to the Lucky Limeade base card which was folded at the top. I wrapped around some Island Indigo Bakers Twine and added a button. The sentiment is from ‘Teeny Tiny Sentiments’ and was stamped in Island Indigo. I think it probably should have been stamped a little lower but never mind now.
I hope to show you some more cards using this stamp over the coming weeks.
Have a great week. I look forward to you stopping by again soon. Why not say ‘Hi’ and leave me a comment. It is always nice to hear from you.
