Our current theme at TIME OUT is 'Bright' which is something I don't usually think about when making my cards, so I knew this one would be fun!
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers and they are giving the winner a $20 voucher to spend in their store!!
I really wanted to use one of my new dies for this card and for some bizarre reason I kept thinking of 'watermelon' for bright colours:
What do you think?? Does it remind you of a watermelon?? My seeds are a bit odd but I think you get the idea.... I'm really happy with how it turned out, makes me smile every time I look at it!
I used some bright green CS with the Your Next Stamp 'Sunburst Panel Die' and also die-cut again with white CS. I added lots of double-sided tape to a piece of white CS and adhered to the back of the green panel, this gave me somewhere to inlay the 'watermelon' pieces.
Using a mini-blending tool and Distress Inks 'Picked Raspberry' and 'Worn Lipstick' I coloured the insert pieces (from white CS), trying to mimic the colouring of a watermelon with it getting more pale towards the outside. I inlaid them all and then drew on some 'seeds' with my new Black Glaze Pen (which I bought from YNS).
I put a piece of white foam behind the green panel and adhered to the card front. The sentiment (from YNS 'One in a Melon') was stamped with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed on white CS. I fussy cut it out and put on foam tape, along with some black pearls.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Food/Drink'.
And will also link to the Stamplorations Summer Vacation Cutplorations Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
