Hi Stamping Friends!

I was playing around with the beautiful Swallowtail image last week and created this card…

Swallowtail blue

This huge butterfly image is so beautiful!  You don't even need to add a bunch of layers or embellishments to created a fabulous card for all kinds of occasions.  It's simple and stunning all on its own!

Here, I stamped the Swallowtail in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder onto Marina Mist card stock.  I also embossed the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness. 

Swallowtail blues 3

I used Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry, Bashful Blue and Marina Mist markers to color in the different sections of the wings.  Talk about quick and easy! 

What? Only One Cool Card? Oh, I tried creating two cool cards for this design, but sometimes one of the two cool cards just ends up looking like crap.  Know what I mean?!  I did find out that coloring over the top of this butterfly with a 2-Way Glue Pen, with the intention of adding some Dazzling Diamonds, makes all of your resisted marker inks run together into a muddy mess.  Good to know.  Haha!
