Swallowtail III

Yes, I do have other stamps, LOL!  This is the last of the samples I made with Swallowtail; however, I'm sure he'll show up again sometime soon.  : )  The layout of this card was inspired by the sample in the Spring Catalog where the Swallowtail stamp was first introduced.   The catalog is a great idea book too!

I used Pool Party cardstock and combined it with Wisteria Wonder for this card.  I used Pool Party Embossing Powder again to heat emboss the swallowtail after it was stamped with VersaMark.  Then I used a small flat paintbrush to apply Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint only to the swallowtail and let it dry.

You can see how shimmery it is as it catches the light!  I love that paint!  It gives a real WOW factor to any project!  I added a Rhinestone that I colored with a Sharpie marker to match the Pool Party.  This Wisteria layer was then added to the Pool Party card with Dimensionals.

The words "above & beyond" from the One in a Million set were stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink.  On the inside is the coordinating message "...that's where you always seem to go!   thanks so much"  I really like this sentiment with the swallowtail, and can't we often use a pretty Thank You card?  This one was simple and easy, yet is quite lovely in person.

     This set has five "pairs" of sentiments; one could be used for the outside of the card then the corresponding stamp on the inside.  I like that!
