Note: Click here for today’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Last month I guest designed for Newton’s Nook Designs and I didn’t get a chance to create a card for their Inky Paws Challenge but I really wanted to! So today I have the card I had a chance to create last week.
There is still time to enter the challenge– you have until Friday June 12th at midnight CDT. I really loved this color combo and my intentions were to stick to it- but I had a hard time getting the coral color. Oh well! Part of card challenges is to get your creative juices flowing and you don’t need to be exact. I love the card I created and that is all that matters 🙂
I stamped out all watermelon images from Newton’s Nook Sweet Summer Clear Stamp set and then used watercolor pencils to color them. This took a lot longer then I thought, but I really wanted to add the shading and dimension. I then stamped the sentiment with the Hero Arts Ombre Pink to Red Ink Pad. Everything is adhered flat to the card. I then embellished it a bit using Sprinkled Sugar Stickles (this is a newer stickles color and I LOVE it) and I also used white opal liquid pearls on the hearts. You can see this better on the detail shots below.
I have used used dryer sheets to make clouds look “cloudy” to stacked them to make them more puffy!
This is gorgeous! I love the ombré melon slices and the pretty touch of liquid pearls on the hearts!
Thanks so much for playing along with our inky paws challenge!
