I hate to think how long ago I purchased this SU stamp! I had used it at a workshop and fell in love with it. I ordered it soon after and when it came it sat in my "hoard" (or should I say collection) of stamps. I hadn't ever used it until now. For August our group had a color swap which was Brown and Turquoise. I stood over my collection of SU stamps and decided it was time to pull this one out.
I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then colored it with Copic markers. When I finished I found a smudge on the bottom edge of the larger piece I had cut so I trimmed it down and mounted it with foam squares.
Actually I started off wanting to just make a one layer card. The area was masked off with post-it notes and then stamped with the Swallowtail stamp. I colored the design with Copic markers but inspite of using a heavy cardstock, I could see a hint of the color on the back side. I decided to trim it down and add it with form squares to a new card base.
After making Card #2, I thought it would be fun to do the same thing but have the butterfly in a window. I didn't actually stamp the butterfly on the inside, but did it on the square that had been cut out from the front of the card base. There is still room for a short sentiment inside and a signature.
I hope this has give you some ideas that could be used with other stamped designs.
