Swallowtail Birthday Card

I made this card for my BFF's birthday using the Swallowtail stamp.
I am in love with this stamp!
I stamped the butterfly in basic black craft ink and then embossed with black powder.
To color the butterfly, I first used my Stampin' write markers and then I filled my aqua painter with alcohol and blended the colors together. Once that dried (which was fast because of the alcohol), I painted a layer of Champagne Mist glimmer paint on top:


  1. OMG!!! That is so striking. I love that stamp as well, and you have inspired me to try this stunning technique. You are so talented. I love your work.TFS

    1. Thank you, Kathy! :o) I had a lot of fun doing this! Would love to hear how you liked using the technique!
