Hello there, as soon as I bought this stamp from Stampin' Up, I wanted to have a play. I thought about doing different techniques, some water colouring or something but for today's card I wanted to keep it quick and simple.

I first took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the Swallowtail on it using TH Peacock Feather Distress Ink. I let it dry for several minutes and went over the whole thing using my clear Wink of Stella brush pen (unfortunately you cannot see the sparkle in the photo but in real life, it is so pretty!). The panel was then adhered to a black A2 card base using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I stamped the greeting from the MFT More Essential Sentiments set on to some black cardstock using Versamagic ink. I heat embossed this in white and then cut it out using an MFT Pierced Fishtail Flag die. This was adhered to the card with more foam tape and then I embellished with a few Doodlebug Sprinkles.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. please click the pictures to be taken to where I bought it.
