Swallowtail Love Artwork

Made this artwork to display on easel like shown in photo below.  I love all things Butterfly.

Found that I still have some current Stampin' Up (SU) products. Neat how when one goes to clean they find things they have that they had forgotten about.

Stamped the SU Swallowtail on Whisper White cardstock using SU Basic Black ink. The MISTI tool (non SU) is a big help for stamping large stamps like this, making sure all areas were inked & stamped. I layered the SU cardstock: Cherry Cobbler (base - for a Valentine/Love color), Basic Black (mat) & Whisper White. Punched some hearts using an SU heart punch and used SU dimensionals to pop them up for dimension.

  1. As long as I have looked at your blog never realized you love butterflies... So do I .. I am back to crafting and have posted about four cards this month. Hope you will visit my blog and leave a message. Would be nice to hear from you.....

  2. Butterflies? I totally would have thought it was honeybee' s that you were fond of!!! I LOVE this......the bright pop of color, and love that you left the butterfly in black, grey, and white!

  3. Nice - simple but elegant! I am still wanting that Misti tool, glad to hear you find it so useful! Thanks for linking up with the Craftin Desert Divas' "Hearts" linky party!!
