So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!
This week I grabbed an old favourite… Swallowtail. This was my most used stamp at one point… but not grabbed it to use for a while.
I did however grab it when I made these two cards from a piece of cardstock I had lying on the desk begging to be painted!
This was the process to get the background done. Added paint with a brayer, then through a stencil.
I stamped the main image in Archival Sepia ink and then the same for the sentiment (JOFY sentiment). I also added a couple of brown doodly circles from JOFY in the same set.
I cut the pieces in different sizes and rotated one so that the triangles were going in different directions. This gave both pieces a different look. I edged them with the brown ink to frame them before putting them on to the card blanks.
I love this stamp and it was nice to play with it again. No doubt as it’s out I will play with it again soon!
