Telescopic Swallowtail

To achieve this optical illusion effect, stack three mats and stamp them at the same time.

I used markers to colour the butterfly, then blended them with an Aqua Painter.

Be sure to use a solvent-based permanent ink like Jet Black StazOn on the stamp whenever you plan to colour the image.

-cut three mats from card stock
-use temporary adhesive to hold them together and stamp the image (The  missing image around the edges will be covered by the dark mats.)
-colour the image with markers, then blend with an Aqua Painter and let dry
-adhere the large coloured mat to the card front
-stack and adhere the small and medium mats together with the dark mats
-wrap with linen thread and adhere the stack to the card front
-add the pin and tag
