Swallowtail Butterfly....flying away forever!

I love this large butter background stamp so much but sadly it's finally time for it to retire.  The Swallowtail stamp is so detailed and beautiful as you can see from this card featuring the Emboss Resist technique.

A few years ago I created a card with this stamp and technique - click here to watch it again.

Isn't this a pretty soft look? Just emboss the butterfly in White Emboss powder and heat set and then use a dauber to sponge some Smoky Slate ink over the entire butterfly.  So pretty!

In this card I stamped the butterfly several times and then just cut out different pieces and layered them (with Stampin' Dimensionals) to create a paper toile look.

I also did a video showing you how to do this particular card with the Paper Toile technique.  You can see it here in a video from a few years ago.


Here are some other cards made using this awesome stamp set.
