Favorite Medallion Creation (so far)

As soon as I got my new catalog back in June, I knew I needed this stamp. I wasn't sure at the time because it doesn't seem to be my 'style' (whatever that is :) ), but I love it. This is my favorite creation with the stamp so far. I inked it up with So Saffron and then sponged Dusty Durango on the edges and center directly on the rubber before stamping. I accidentally picked up the So Saffron instead of the Crushed Curry, but love the look of it. I made a bunch using Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango for a Convention dinner swap back in August. Didn't realize my mistake until I was making those and then had them side by side. They are both great, but have different looks. Hopefully I'll get a chance soon to make some other color combinations.

Stamp Sets: Medallion, Short and Sweet
Ink: So Saffron, Dusty Durango
Paper: Whisper White, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Dusty Durango Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon, Small and Large Oval punches, half pearl from Pretties Kit, Mini Glue Dots, sponge

I can see why this is your favorite project using this stamp. I'll have to give this technique a try :)
