Emboss Resist Swallowtail - Make My Monday

Emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques. 
 It can make a card just "pop" in an easy embossing step!  
I used the Swallowtail stamp because a big background
 stamp is perfect for this technique and also because
"Butterflies" are the theme at Make My Monday where I'm
 entering this card into the challenge.
All the ink on the card except for the sentiment and 
butterfly is sponged on.  I think the two colors together look 
great - Soft Sky and Blackberry Bliss. 
 The sentiment was done with Island Indigo. 
And the Embossing Powder used was clear.  
And so easy and quick - I did two cards in no time at all!!  
Hope you had a great July and are ready for a wonderful August!
 (Happy 1st day of - by the way)

  3. That is so neat! I'm comparing the one done earlier in subtle tones to this very bright a happy butterfly. It's really a great technique.
