Mediterranean style features bold designs emphasizing textures and unique color palettes. With these stencils, you can experiment with earthy tones like terracotta, yellow, turquoise, or metallic in copper and gold. You just might find your new favourite ink color combo while playing with this stylish design!
By changing the turning interval of the stencil, I was able to create two very different designs for my cards.
I used a 45 and 30 degree intervals for the first and second card respectively. I wanted to choose color palettes that would accentuate the Mediterranean vibes.
I then popped these backgrounds onto bright vibrant back panels which complement these color palettes.
I clear heat embossed the sentiment in this card to make it stand out even more from the background.

I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!
I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!
All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.
Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!
The final design is achieved in 3 rounds of inking (by rotating the stencil to every 4th circle on the scale, twice). This large canvas allows her to easily create two cards, an A2 size and a 5×5 square card, just by slicing it down near the middle!
This one below is the A2 size card. I just love the rainbow hue that she blended.
Below is the 5×5” square card. I love how the beautiful colors contrasting against the crisp black trims and sentiments!
