So fun to host the CC451 Challenge this week. I chose colors that I thought would be great for the Holiday Season. I thought I would play with the colors on my new Swallowtail Card...gosh, I liked the results so much I ended up using for my challenge card.
I sponged my colors directly on the stamp using sponge daubers. Then stamped onto W White CS and cut out with my Papersnips.
Then the fun really began...I stamped the Swallowtail image with Versamark and Heat EB with Clear EB Powder. Wow...what gorgeous shine and brought out all the colors beautifully.
I just added dimensionals in the middle and liquid glue to the edges to give the image a popped up look.
My card is 5" X 6" because of the large swallowtail image. I will make a custom envelope later using my SU Envelope Punch Board.
Enjoy and please join our CC451 Challenge.

A true WOW…love this butterfly!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
