Stampin' UP! Swallowtail....

It's been a while but with the Nutty One still in Afghan and the kids off on school holidays there just never seemed to be enough hours in the day. 
We are finally back into a routine and with only 5 weeks left till the Nutty One returns I can finally update my blog. 
I was busy crafting over the summer when time allowed and thought I would share with you one of the projects from my new Mermaid Makes Class.
These new classes are run every 3 months and included in the cost of the class is a bumper bag full of Stampin' UP! product. These classes are run slightly differently in that I have lots of samples on display, all of which can be made from the contents of the kit. Each person then decides which projects they would like to do and away they go... I am on hand as always to assist and encourage 'artistic license' 

This project is an 8"x8" page however the Swallowtail stamp overhangs the edges slightly. 
The papers used are Modern Medley and the punch is the new Hexagon Punch.

I used Stampin' Up! reinkers mixed with a little Isopropanol Alcohol to colour the image and also to provide some interest to the background. 

As you can see below the Swallowtail Stamp was first stamped onto the page then stamped again and cut out, mounted on Stampin' UP! Dimensionals to give depth.

A few randomly placed Stampin' Up! Rhinestones add a little bling.

I hope you enjoyed this project and for more information on how to purchase the products used or on my classes then please use the "contact me" button on the top right.
