Beautiful Birthday, Brushos, Swallowtail, Use them or Lose them

Use them or lose them #4 set 2

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 have been playing with the fabulous Swallowtail stamp.  I decided for these three cards to use Brushos to create some cool splodgy backgrounds…


All three very different.  Then all I needed to do was add the Swallowtail and a sentiment.




For each of them I edged the piece with a black pen, added it to a piece of scrap from the organised scrap box (I am defintely making use of this box this year) and added some card candi embellishments.

Love these.  Super simple to do and super effective arty cards!  This Swallowtail stamp is going nowhere! That is for definite!

Happy crafting!
