Grand Vacation 2013 Swap: Off The Grid and Swallowtail

About time for a card I think.   This one is my Grand Vacation swap.  I made 21 of these - one for Stampin' Up to keep and 20 for the swap.

The card features Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Blushing Bride and Shimmery White cardstock. 

Products: The background is done with Gorgeous Grunge stamped in Blushing Bride and Off The Grid stamped in Versamark and embossed with a mixture of the new Smoky Slate embossing powder and some Dazzling Diamonds for added sparkle.  Plus Swallowtail stamped in Stazon Black and coated with lashings of Crystal Effects.  (Leave overnight to dry - don't be tempted to check earlier or you'll get fingerprints.  Ask me how I know!)  Some of the new chevron ribbon in Smoky Slate to finish.

Can you see the glossy finish on the butterfly?  Here's another view.

I handed in my pack of swaps on the first night at St Regis, and a couple of days later got my pack of swaps back with 20 gorgeous creations from some of my fellow demonstrators.  It was fun looking through them all.  Here's a peek.

See you soon with some more creations.

Cheers, Sue
