I've recently purchased the Swallowtail stamp and just love it. I have cased a couple of cards from Eva Gail Lowe on Stampin Connection Click Here For one I used the same colours and only changed the back ground stamps, the other one I changed the Swallowtail embossing powder and sponged two of the new In Colours. Eva Gail very generously sent her tutourial to anyone who sent her an email and then followed up with instructions for taking a class in this card. Thanks Heaps Eva Gail.
