Rock & Roll


The rock & roll technique was the first I ever learned. It's also one of my favorites. If you haven't heard of it, rock & roll consists of inking your image first in a lighter color and then rolling the edges of your image in a darker color. Images, like the fish I used, that aren't circular get a really neat effect!
Did you notice that I've used a NEW color? Pool Party, it's gorgeous right?! I am completely in love with it!!!! I paired it with Not Quite Navy to make this CAS Father's Day card.

Have you tried the rock & roll technique? Do you have a technique that you love? Share it with me, I love to learn :)

Such a lovely card! I love the color blue and so this card is just my taste. Would you share which fish-stamp you used? My DH loves koi fishes and I am always looking for stamps. Great technique too, i'm sure, i will try this out.

Kind regards from Switzerland
