Happy Wednesday! The week is almost over! Does anyone have any great weekend plans? I am taking my youngest to a Lego party. He is very excited. (I hoping to get some crafting done after the party!!!).
Today I am sharing a card inspired out of the Spring catalog. On page 19, Stampin' Up shows a card done with the Swallowtail stamp. Beautiful!! They even gave us quick directions on how to make the image sparkle. I had to try!!!
The embossed image is :
Stamped in versamark
Embossed with Pool Party embossing powder
Brushed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint using an Aqua Painter
I loved the way it looked so I had to try it. The swallowtail stamp is wonderful! It is a big stamp, I found it stamped well and I love that it is such a statement by itself. I decided not to use any embellies for this card, I really wanted that shimmery butterfly to be the main focus!
Here is a different angle which helps to show that glimmery butterfly! CUTE!!! If you don't have the shimmer paint- it has so many possibilities!! Well worth it!!!
I used a strip of Real Red Core'dinations Cardstock. I love this paper!! I used the Sale-a-Bration Vine Street embossing folder to add a little texture to the cardstock and sanded it! A quick card but so pretty with that amazing Butterfly!!!
