Swallowtail Joseph's Coat Technique

Hi bloggers! Its me, here with another creation for this months color challenge over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, head on over and check out the details and join in the fun!!

Most would think Halloween when you see those colors, but I came across this cool technique called "Joseph's Coat" and wanted to try it with these colors.  I also knew I wanted to use the Swallowtail Stamp!  Head on over to Frenchiestamps to watch her video.  Its a great way to do a different kind of stamp emboss resist technique.

So this is what I came up with.  Not perfect by no means, but this was my first try.  I had a lot of fun with my creation, leave me a comment and I can't wait to see your take on these colors!!
I even added half of the butterfly to the inside for an added touch.

Card Supplies:
stamp sets:  swallowtail, label love
punch:  artisan label
ink colors:  tangerine tango, early espresso and elegant eggplant
cardstock:  early espresso, whisper white, elegant eggplant, tangerine tango
misc.:  fancy fan folder, white taffeta ribbon
