Stampin' Up! Swallowtail

I have a cousin who is an artist,
and he recently shared a friend's work
that inspired me....

My immediate thought was 'Gorgeous Grunge'
-well, I am Stampin' Up! obsessed!

I loved the way the detail gave way to splodges,
giving the merest hint of the actual shape.
(Believe me, the detail on this drawing is awesome!)

I then tried 'Swallowtail' to create a similar effect.....
I inked up part of the stamp,
cut out a mask of the butterfly shape,
and randomly stamped some 'splodges'
to fill in the shape.

Here's my finished card
that I kept very simple
