Back to swallowtail. Todays make is in crouched curry with black heat embossing, yes the heat gun was still on the desk and I hadn't opened my black embossing powder. I love this colour combination it really pops and the butterfly looks as if it is 3d, particularly from a distance.
I have started with whisper white. Stamped with versa mark then heat embossed black embossing powder. I did two then carefully cut out the second one. I used the outside of the second one as a mask to sponge the crushed curry onto the butterfly then used the second butterfly as a mask to sponge the sky. I have stamped the lower edge with that wonderful bush stamp in awesomely artistic.
Looking at it now it probably didn't need the lace trim but hey ho who doesn't love a bit of lace.
As a contrast this one is pastel coloured and its the swing pop out card. So pretty. This one I posted details of a few weeks ago.
