Best of Butterflies

How appropriate that the April "Best of" Stamp Set is Best of Butterflies since that is exactly what I have to show you today! For the last couple of weeks those who have attended my private 'in-home' classes have made some beautiful cards using the Swallowtail Stamp. It is the VERY large butterfly stamp found in the Spring Catalog but it works wonderfully on cards...

Stamped in VersaMark and embossed with Black embossing powder. Color with a blender pen or sponge daubers with Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo ink for the traditional Swallowtail colors.
Stamped 3 times in Midnight Muse, Layers are cut out by hand and adhered with dimensionals.
Can you see the layers?
Stamped with VersaMark again and heat embossed with White embossing powder. This one is very subtle.
Ahh. Wisteria Wonder Ink, Cardstock and Ruffled Ribbon make this a simple but elegant card.
I saw this technique on pinterest and just had to try it. We didn't do this in class since the drying time is overnight but I love it! The Swallowtail is stamped in Black Stazon Ink and a layer of Crystal Effects is applied. Simply stunning!
