I just love this new set of stamps I received from Blockheads!  They have some of the most fantastic rubber stamps.  The images range from Bohemian to convervative to Vintage to Flourishes.  You can't go wrong with the Blockheads sets.

For my card, I have used two different sets.  What I really love about the centre of this card is that it fits right in with what I am "in to" right now, zentangling.  I was SO excited when I saw that Blockheads had this large stamp on a sheet with 9 other stamps!

You have to go over there and see all the choices.  They are too numerous to list.  I hope you like my card!

The colors around the tangle are done with watercolors and then once they dried, I covered the entire background with frost white (not watered down) by SU and a very wide brush then heated that until it was dry.

I love this stamp!  I versamarked it and then put on white embossing powder.
All the edges of my black card have oil pastels on them and then smeared with my finders.
Fushia, teal and Purple

How great is this zentangle!

This too is done with Versamark on the black, then white embossing powder.  It is a tad difficult to read, but if you can..."It was all love on my side, and all good comradship and friendship on hers.  When we parted she was a free woman, but I could never again be a free man."

What a lovely but sad Quote...Broken Hearted.
