Watermelon's are such an iconic Summer fruit and the green and pink colour combo is divine. The Gallery is going to look very refreshing and pretty this week!!
I happened to have a watermelon stamp that I have never used and I wanted to get back into my colouring for The Daily Marker - 30 Day Colouring Challenge, so my pencils came out to play:
I had to stay home with Max yesterday as he caught Phoebe's cold (she was sick over the weekend and Monday), so it gave me a chance to colour away and watch a movie. After I finished I fussy cut them all out and adhered them in a fanned circle pattern on the card front. I used a Couture Creation circle die to cut some vellum. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed using black embossing powder. This is probably only the second time I've used black and you have to be so careful with random bits melting in the wrong place but I wanted the words to be shiny. I used some double-sided tape to put the sentiment in place.
The watermelon and sentiment stamp are both from a Kelly Purkey stamp set 'Summertime'.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Work it Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Something New', which is the stamp set.
You have until next Wednesday to link your projects to the Just Add Ink challenge. The rest of the fabulous Design Team have some beautiful projects on the blog if you need any help with ideas. I can't wait to see what you make in the Gallery!!
