Sparkling Swallowtails

Today I have a couple of cards to show for my niece, the other for my upline.  I have to say I love this stamp!  It seems like there's so many different colors I can use with it. :)  
This first card is for my niece's birthday.  I know she loves yellow, but I needed to add a bit more color so I used Primrose Petals and Pretty in Pink.  First I inked the whole image in VersaMark, then sponged on the other colors.  After I stamped my image I covered it with Heat & Stick powder, then used the heat gun.  After that I poured Dazzling Diamonds all over it and used the heat gun again.  If you want lots of sparkle that's the way to do it!

Since I really liked my niece's card I thought I'd do another one using all of the 2012-2014 In Colors.  I made this as a thank you for my upline.  Whenever I need to borrow any of her stampin' stuff for my stamp a stacks she's more than willing to share...even at the last minute. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
