Stampin' up! swallowtail

Wow when this stamp set arrived I knew it was going to be a big one but didn't realise just how detailed it was.  It is absolutely gorgeous.

I stamped the butterfly in marina mist ink pad and then ran it through the big shot with the vine street embossing folder to give it some texture.  With a bit of sponging to add the rainbow colour and teamed up with a few little butterflies using the new tiny butterfly punch finished it off.  Oh I put some dazzling details sparkly glue with a great fine nib round the outline of the butterfly (difficult to see in pic but adds a shimmer) and three little pearls on the tiny butterflies.

Apologies that the pic is sideways still getting used to my new phone taking the pics.
