I thought I'd get one of my favourite stamps's out "The Swallowtail", it's such a big stamp but there is so much that can be done with it. This time I decided to have 2 layers of the Swallowtail, the first having part of the wing cut away to reveal the Real Red Cardstock - my first panel on my card. Then with the second Swallowtail I cut even more away to reveal the Real Red Swallowtail underneath with the Tempting Turquoise Swallowtail on the top layer. With the Tempting Turquoise Swallowtail I stamped it with my Versamark Ink Pad and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder which did give me a bit of a challenge when photographing the card as it tends to have that lovely sheen on it which sometimes can leave a glare in the photo. I hope you like it  and are inspired to give it a try!! 

There's no rules where to cut the Swallowtail to make your layers, just do cut away a portion to reveal the floating Swallowtail - this seems to be one of my most popular with my customers for all occasions. It is great as Thank You cards and as Invites as well.
