I think I gasped the first time I saw the Swallowtail stamp!! It is gorgeous! It was one of the first stamps I ordered in the Spring Catalog – but I didn’t “ink it up” til last week!! Now I love it even more than when I first saw it!!!
It stamps so nicely – especially with our new style of ink pads. They are the best!
I used the En Francais background stamp and just lightly inked it – I was hoping for a more “muted” look with the background. I used Midnight Muse ink for the Swallowtail, added a little peek of doily at the side, one of the flowers from the flower trim bolt (sponged with some crumb cake ink) and a snip of midnight muse ribbon.
This card comes together pretty quickly – my favorite kind of card!
