This is the first card, I kept it all one colour - Cornflower archival ink
I stamped the 'so sorry' from the new line writing set (these are one of my favourite styles of wording - very useful!) I wiped a little bit of ink off each end of the line before I stamped it, because I didn't want it to be quite as long as it actually is.
I stamped a lacy swallow at each end
For the main piece of the card, all I did was add some ink round the edge of the card and add a few gems and mat on to matching card
For the background piece, I stamped bits of the tail and wing of the larger swallow and added some extra ink.
