I think this Swallowtail stamp was immediately my favorite when the spring catalog came out. I love the big bold images, but it did intimidate me a little after I got it. I have a very large pile of stamped images that didn’t make the cut!!
For this card I heat embossed the swallowtail in black, then colored it with blender pens and the classic ink pads. I love the seam binding ribbon. (let’s all pray together that it makes it into the new catalog coming out in June!!) To make the scrunchie-wrinkled look, roll the ribbon around in the palm of your hand in to a ball, and use a spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol, and spray. Set it aside to dry. The alcohol drys quickly and you will have the very shabby wrinkled ribbon to work with.
Hope everyone had a great week.
