Happy Birthday Carolyn!
I really love the Swallowtail stamp. I've been using it a lot lately and ask myself, "Why did I wait so long to get it?". I made this card for my mother-in-law's birthday. She is a 'say something pink' kind of lady so I always try to incorporate pink into her cards every year. I embossed the butterfly with black embossing powder which made it easy to add the colors using an Aquapainter. Daffodil Delight surrounds the body, fading out into Pink Pirouette and finally a burst of Strawberry Slush at the ends completes this summery butterfly. I inked up Gorgeous Grunge with Crumb Cake ink to add the speckles which balanced out the boldness of the butterfly nicely. Happy Stamping!
