My card today is made with the beautiful stamp “Swallowtail”. That’s a huge stamp but it’s so nice and elegant!!!  I heat embossed the butterfly with White embossing powder and then I used sponge daubers and Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloup, Crush Curry and Daffodil Delight ink to color it. I used Natural White card stock in the background (I really like to look of that card stock!) stamped with little butterflies from “Papillon Popourri” stamp set with Pink Pirouette ink. It’s really subtle and that’s the look I was going for.  The small butterfly was stamped with White ink on Vellum and then colored at the back with markers. By using this technique, the colors appear less “bright”. I used the matching punch “Bitty Butterfly” to cut it.  It is raised with a dimensional.
