Rainbow Swallowtail

When I was waiting for my Blendabilities to arrive, I kept thinking how fun it would be to color the large Swallowtail butterfly stamp with them...and it was!

I couldn't decide which color to I ended up using them all and made a rainbow butterfly! I blended the Rich Razzleberry into the Cherry Cobbler and the Cherry into the Pumpkin Pie and the Pumpkin into the Daffodil Delight...I'm sure I'll never see a butterfly like this in nature, but it sure was fun to color!

I had originally planned to make a standard sized card, but I couldn't bring myself to cut any of this beauties wings off...that would have just been cruel, so I went with a 5 1/5" square base using the new Lost Lagoon. I'll just need to create a special envelope...but that will be easy using the Punch Board.

The word "Imagine" is from the Loving Thoughts is on the retiring list and still available in wood mount. (clear mount has already sold out)

Have a great weekend!

OMG. I feel redundant saying how much I love this card after just commenting on the travel card, but this beautiful butterfly is just gorgeous. I'm so glad you didn't cut off any portion of it because we would have heard him scream. It looks alive. What a great job. I love how you work with those blendabilites pens. I hope I can create similar results. Thank you for posting this card.
