Swallowtail Birthday Card

It's my Sister Natalie's 40th Birthday soon and as she lives in Hong Kong I had to make her and her daughter Bree's cards early so they would get there in time.  I made these ages ago but they have now made their way to Hong Kong so I can now brag about them.  This is the gorgeous Swallowtail stamp from Stampin' Up! and it is one of my favourites.  There are so many things you can do with this stamp, this particular technique I have used is called Thumping.  I covered the stamp in Blushing Bride the I 'thumped' Rich Razleberry, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise over the the stamp by thumping the markers onto the stamp randomly then stamped it onto the card front.  This technique always turns out different and looks great if I do say so myself. The flower in the middle of the butterfly was made made using our new Simply Pressed Clay and the Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Mould which I then coloured with Rich Razzleberry and coated it in Crystal Effects and added a Rhinestone to it.  I stamped the 40 then covered that in Rhinestones. I hope Nat enjoys her birthday card.
