Triple Stamping Butterfly
As the Swallowtail is such a large stamp, I was curious to see if I could get this to work. I cut three stamping pieces, based on the size of the stamp. They were: 6x 4 3/4,5x 3 3/4 and 4x 2 3/4. The mat layers are 1/4" bigger than the stamping pieces.( 6 1/4 x 5, etc)
Layered the stamping pieces on top of each other, holding them together with re-positionable tape. Then I stamped & embossed the butterfly in Versamark & White embossing powder, and coloured him in the same way as the others.
Tip here, separate the layers as you heat emboss them, as the heat makes the re-positionable tape separate, and you have sheets of card sliding everywhere.
