This Swallowtail Beauty stamp is HUGE and covers the entire front of an A2 card which is awesome because it lends itself to lots of different techniques.  I’m sharing a couple today and I hope you will enjoy them and give them a try

 

Picket Fence Studios Swallowtail Beauty Card #1

  • Black heat emboss the butterfly onto a 4 x 5-1/2 piece of Neenah Solar White 80#.
  • Use blending brushes to add Gina K inks:  Cherry Red, Tangerine Twist, Wild Dandelion.
  • Use a dry paper towel to rub off any ink sitting on top of the embossing.
  • Mount to a A2 sized top folding black card base.
  • Die cut the sentiment pieces in black and white and blend the ink over the letters before attaching to the black ghost piece.  Add foam tape to the back and mount to the card base.

  • Lay the Fancy Flourishes Stencil over the piece and secure to your work surface.
  • Use small blending brushes to add Gina K Ink Cherry Red, Tangerine Twist and Wild Dandelion to just the inside of the wings.

  2. I have this stamp and love embossing and ink blending over it. But your stencil technique caught my attention. How unique and beautiful! I’m definitely going to try this soon!

    1. thank you Elisha, I was pleasantly surprised at how pretty that ink blend combo was, that cherry red at the bottom is just fab.

  3. Wonderful projects shares. Very lovely combinations. These are something I’d love to try to recreate, especially the texture layers. Subbed for more.
