Some time ago, my blogging buddy Ruth from Crafting while the baby naps shared a couple of fun cards where she was 'melonising' her stamped images. I thought it was a fun idea but did not give it a go myself until last week, using the heart stamp from Winnie & Walter's True stamp set.

After colouring my images using Copics, I fussy cut them and adhered them to a black panel (Crafters Companion) to which I added some gold splatters using my new Gansai Tambi Starry colours. The sentiment is from the Kindness with Evelin T Designs stamp set (Winnie & Walter).

  1. Striking card. Thanks for joining us at ATSM

  2. I've never come across that technique Marianne but it certainly makes for a very striking card.

    Hope all goes well with you and hubby.

  3. Wauw Mar, what a beauty! Powerful. De goud spetters maken het af.
    Liefs Ineke☀️

  4. Melonising - I didn't know what to think of it when I read the word but that's a really fun way of coloring stamps and getting an unusual effect. With the black background and gold splatters they look like planets in outer space!

  5. Melonizing anything is so fun. Love the gold splatters on the black. Cute card. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More. 😊 Trina

  8. Oh yes!!!!!! YES!! So glad you decided to give it a go. I will let you know when the next melonizing challenge is over on Instagram. I'm hoping she will run it again soon :) I LOVE what you've done too. It's such a brilliant idea. I love seeing the melon hearts pop out of the black. Brilliant stuff! Xx
