Stunning Swallowtail, framed!

Well hello my lovelies!
How is your weekend going so far? Did you watch Eurovision? I saw a little of it...there were some better entries than usual weren't there?

Anyway, back to something I am slightly more interested in. I have been at it with the picture frames again! I think you will be seeing a lot of these from me in the near future as I have been frame shopping this weekend!

So this one has shown the absolute best of this stunning Swallowtail stamp! As it is such a huge stamp (this frame is 8x8in) it often only gets a part of it shown on cards. I stamped it in Versamark onto Watercolour Card, and heat embossed in Smoky Slate, before water colouring in Tempting Turquoise.

The background stamp is En Francais and is also Smoky Slate. The sentiment is from Sweet Essentials and I added a row of Basic Rhinestones to complete it and give a little sparkle.

Here is the stunning detail of this stamp. Really, it is definitely the best butterfly stamp I've ever seen!
