More Swallowtail Butterflies

I am having just too much fun with this stamp.  Have been creating them with different colors and layouts.  Not sure I could pick a favorite.  Most are glittered but as usual it doesn't show well in a scan.
These were all stamped on white c/s using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copics and run through the Big Shot using the Oval Nesties.  A portion of the wings were fussy cut first so that it would appear to be outside of the oval.  The Left wind portion and body are glued down, with Dimensionals used under the outer edges of the right wing.  Makes for a pretty neat effect.  Complimentary colors were sponged onto the white around the butterfly, to better tie the colors together.

Oh wow, Diane, these are beautiful. Not only are the designs fabulous but you used a fun technique (haven't tried that one). And I'm jealous you already have Swallowtail :)
