I absolutely love this swallowtail stamp. It is such a dramatic image no matter what you do with it! I love this week's colors too...the first time I've broken out the new colors! Becky gave us: Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Wisteria Wonder and Very Vanilla with a dessert of adding a pin or clip to our cards. I started with a piece of Neutral Patterns Pack dp with the script and inked my swallowtail with Versamark then Brown Sugar and embossed in clear. I used a brush to get ink from my stamp pad lids to color the butterfly. I don't have a brown sugar marker yet, so I painted from the lid around the edges of the butterfly for more depth. I inked the sentiment in Versamark and Wisteria and embossed it in clear as well. I strung some pearls with Linen Thread and added a vintage trinket safety pin.
