Swallowtail Stamp a Stack

Good morning! Eurgghh its a miserable morning here this morning - perfect for crafting but alas I have lots of jobs to do!!

Still sharing Stamp a Stack cards so here is a another one. This card was totally inspired and cased from my lovely downline Sally Jo. She made me the most beautiful gift at our Telford event and this card accompanied (I have added a photo below).

I have to say I wasn't totally sold on the Swallowtail stamp when I first saw it. It was one of those stamps that I thought "I don't know what to do with it". Then I saw all the gorgeous samples and like lots of my customers I was immediately sold on it!

The colour scheme on this card is Soft Suede and Elegant Eggplant. I stamped on the Naturals Ivory card with the Stazon ink then watercoloured it with an aquabrush and the ink pad.

The edges were distressed with the Distressing Tool and then inked with Soft Suede. A tiny piece of Silver Glimmer card was positioned in the top left corner as shown here.

Here is the original gift made by Sally Jo - I just love it! Thanks SJ for the pressie and the inspiration!
