Have you noticed that I like butterflies?
Well, I do, and Stampin’ Up! keep bringing out such beautiful butterfly stamps.
What do you think? Isn’t he just the most beautiful butterfly?
Trust me, you will be seeing quite a lot more of this stamp, it’s called Swallowtail. Despite that it is quite large, and actually slightly bigger than our standard card size, it still looks gorgeous slightly off-set or just using half as I have done here.
I have heat embossed the butterfly using black embossing powder onto white cardstock and then coloured inside the embossed areas using So Saffron ink and a blender pen, and just gently going over and over the areas so as not to rough up the cardstock.
I have to say that Mr Butterfly looks much more stunning in real life.
Hope you are having a crafty Tuesday. Happy Stamping!
