A different Swallowtail

Hello again!
Well, as promised, here is the card using the Swallowtail stamp in a slightly different way...

I have used shrink plastic on this one and I love it! It really makes the butterfly look so realistic!

The smaller butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri set. I coloured both using my Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens to drag the colour out. Isn't it beautiful? In real life this looks so very real!

Cardstock - Basic Gray, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper - Brights
Embossing Folder - Elegant Lines
Stamps - Swallowtail, Papillon Potpourri, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink - Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray
