Swallowtail - Thank You Card

This was the third and final card my ladies created in my Technique class this month. Again, the design is very much inspired by a beautiful card created by Tina Zinck.

The Technique is called Block Fill and you would normally use a marker to fill in the block. I couldn't do this because I only own one Pool Party marker and with so many people in class it would have needed too much 'resting' in-between each person using it to re-charge .... so I decided to use the Aqua Painters and ink pads instead :o)

The beautiful butterfly was stamped using Basic Grey ink. I then created my 'Block' by drawing a light pencil line 2cm in from all the sides. The inside of this was then filled using the Aqua Painter with the Pool Party ink pad. Once dry, the pencil line can be erased.

The decorative border is optional and I did this using the Basic Grey marker.

The butterfly was also coloured using the Aqua Painter and various Subtles Collection ink pads.
