I think in all my years of stamping, I’ve only seen 1-2 stamps EVER that come close to meeting the beauty of the Swallowtail stamp (see it online – 129216).
I know the Swallowtail image is huge — nearly bigger than a standard card front (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″). Don’t let it intimidate you!
Here are a few of my suggestions for using it:
- Use only a portion of the butterfly (like in the samples here)
- Go monochromatic – a single color shows off the beauty in the stamp perfectly
- Heat emboss the butterfly – be sure to use high end embossing powder (like from Stampin’ Up!) to capture all the detail
