Swallowtail Day 1 - Emboss Resist Technique

Emboss Resist using Swallowtail
Here are the steps to completing this pretty technique:
1.  Stamp your image (Swallowtail) in Clear Embossing Ink (I used VersaMark ink). 
2.  Sprinkle stamped image with embossing powder of your choice (I used white).
3.  Heat until completed melted (image will have a slight shine to it).
4.  Now the fun part!  Grab your ink pads and a sponge or dauber.  "Pick up" the ink using the sponge and gently rub over area you want colored.  I started in the center of the butterfly and then worked outward.
Viola!  It's THAT easy!

**The sentiment is an old stamp in my stash and there is not a name on it, sorry.**
