Swallowtail Butterfly

Swallowtail, Stampin' Up! Stampin Up

Today's card features the beautiful and simply HUGE Swallowtail butterfly stamp from Stampin' Up! I absolutely adore this stamp set and it has been a little while since I played with it so thought it was time to dust it off.

I am so pleased to tell you that it will be carrying forwards into the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which starts 2nd June 2015; please get in touch if you would like a catalogue.

Swallowtail, Stampin' Up! Stampin Up

I stamped the Swallowtail in Black StazOn ink and I used some Blender Pens to pick up the colour (and shade in) from the following Classic Ink Pads: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red. Sentiment comes from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set.

I stamped the image on the card first then recreated another butterfly which I stuck on top so that the wings hang over the edge of the card and create a 3D effect.

What do you think?

Supplies for the card are listed at the bottom of the page, don't forget to browse or buy the Official Stampin' Up! shop by pressing the Shop Online Now button at the top of the screen.

Back soon,
