I had lots of fun playing with the Swallowtail image last week! Here are two cool experiments:
I tried embossing the Swallowtail image on some of the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street Designer Series Papers and then coloring it with Markers.
Version #1 uses the Summer Starfruit pattern from the Sycamore Street DSP. I stamped in VersaMark and embossed in Basic Black Embossing Powder. I should have taken a photo of that, because it looked pretty awesome without the coloring.
The Lacy & Lovely sentiment is also embossed.
I colored in the sections with Summer Starfruit, Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango Markers. The paper's pattern slightly shows through for a nice effect.
I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint over the top for shine! Gorgeous!
Version #2 uses the Razzleberry dotted pattern from the Sycamore Street DSP. I tried Pool Party Embossing Powder on the Swallowtail and Blooming With Kindness sentiment for a bold contrast. Not sure if I like it very much…what do you think?
This time, I used Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Elegant Eggplant Markers to color the wings.
