Tailless Swallowtail

A tailless swallowtail:


  • Library catalog card bar inked with Distress Oxide Inks some months ago
  • Butterfly and text cut from an old field guide that belonged to my grandparents
  • Liquid Pearls in gold
  • Flowers from my stash
  • 5/8" grosgrain ribbon from my stash
  • Tim Holtz Ledger Script stamp added to parts of card with Vintage Photo archival ink
  • Vintage Photo Distress Crayon drawn and blended at edges
I'd like to share this at the following challenges:
Odd that two challenges have such a similar and uncommon theme this round!  Hmmm... what is the connection?


  1. This is so pretty Mimi, I love your butterfly1 Thanks so much for joining in with our challenge at Lost Coast Designs, and have a lovely weekend, Sue xx

  2. Great card. Love the background. Thank you for joining us at TioT.
