Re-inker Spread Swallowtail card

This is one of the cards we're making this weekend at my Stepped Up Cards Classes (Friday evening and Sunday afternoon and evening). The design was based on a sketch challenge by Amanda Corbet.

I used the re-inker spread technique (stamped Swallowtail on Shimmery White cardstock with VersaMark, embossed with Early Espresso Stampin' Emboss powder, spritzed with water and used my Aquapainter to randomly add colours from re-inkers, then allowed to dry and cut out) to create my butterfly

Stamps: Swallowtail, Bloomin' Marvelous
Inks: VersaMark, Soft Suede
Re-inkers: Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral
card stock: Baja Breeze, Calypso Coral, Shimmery White
Other: Curly Label punch, Metallic Brads, Early Espresso Stampin' Emboss powder, Vine Street Embossing Folder (Sale-a-bration freebie), Aqua Painter, Paper Snips
