The Swallowtails last flight

It is with great sadness that I use the magnificent Swallowtail for the last time.

This is trully a beautiful stamp that can be used in so many ways. I have layered it with several dies today.

Swallowtail - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4008228

The swallowtail was stamped using Basic Black Archival ink, then watercoloured using Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight inks. 

I used both the Bold Butterfly and Butterfly Thinlits to create the 3 layers on top. The final layer is a vellum one.

The swallowtail seemed a bit stark on a plain white backgroiund, so I stamped randomly on the card front to add a bit more detail.

I then tied in the coloutrs I used on the butterflies for the ribbon and card tabs under the sentiment. 

As I mentioned, the Swallowtail stamp is retiring, and the clear mount has already sold out. So if you don't want to miss out all together, then grab the wood mount now before it too is gone.


Thanks for droppingby.
Have agreat day.
