Sneak Peek from Seasonal Catalogue - Swallowtail

Hi Sminkers....

Sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday, time just got away from me. I really hope you all had a wonderful Australia Day and spent it celebrating with your loved ones. We are really lucky to live in such an awesome country!

So anyway the other night I set about playing with a new butterfly stamp which is in the Seasonal Catalogue starting on February 1st. I love anything to do with butterflies, so was super excited when I saw this one. I did however under estimate the size of this beauty. I just love how it makes such a statement though and you really need very little else on the card apart from a sentiment.

When I set about making this card I had a friend in mind who also likes butterflies and Island Indigo from the 2011-2013 In Colour family. So I made another card slightly different which I will give to her when her birthday rolls around in a couple of months time. I won't post a picture of that one as I want to keep an element of surprise but below is the one I made for my Launch Party display. I inked up the stamp in Versamark and then in Island Indigo to enable it to stay wetter longer once stamped onto the cardstock. I then applied some Iridescent Ice embossing powder and hit it with the heat tool to add some sparkle. I just love how it wraps around the card and can't wait to experiment with different colours and layouts. What do you think? I would love to hear your comments. I will post some more sneak peek pictures of products from the Seasonal Catalogue in my post tomorrow. Until then enjoy the rest of your three day weekend!
