Round and round

Penny Black is showcasing new 2012 summer stamps this week and next week and the medallion stamp above is from the set Round and Round.

Just as yesterday’s “vintage style” card was slightly out of character for me, I think this one is even more so. It is not often you see a primary coloured card or a geometric matted layout from me. But what can I say? Sometimes you just have to try something different. I stamped the medallion in black and embossed it then coloured with watercolour pencils. I added water with a paintbrush to some colours for extra vibrancy. The sentiment is also from Round and Round.

Tomorrow I have something new for you, a first for me, but definitely back in my usual spongy style!


Stamps: Round and Round (Penny Black)
Inks:  Memento Danube Blue, Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)

    Hi Heather,
    This is totally different than I’m used to you, but very nice.
    Lovely greet Marja

    Thinking out of the box is good for creativity, I always say (for example take my zentangle!!)
    So you can find out what fits the best.
    This surely is also a beautiful card, but I like your other style the best.

    Beautifully stamped and coloured Heather but oh I miss your sponged delights!! I didn’t get round to commenting on your last post but the vintage butterfly card was gorgeous, definitely my kind of design 🙂

    It is a pretty card and anyone would love to get it…..however it does not inspire me as ‘YOUR’ cards do…isn’t it wonderful that everyone likes something different! LOL!
    Paper Hugs,

    It is different from your usual, but I like it! Very bold and geometric, and of course you’ve coloured it in such a way to really bring out the hearts in the centre of the medallion. Very Tuscan tile-like or something! 😛

    Jan said it best……nothing beats your own style, even though EVERY card you do is wonderful.

    Thanks for the tutorial. i bought the masking fluid months ago but needed this tutorial.
