Some hot up here in Ontario this week. Love it, because all kinds of summer fruit is available--strawberries, watermelon, yummy!
The colours for this week's Color My Heart Color Dare are a bunch of summer shades, chosen from the Surf's Up paper pack from Close to My Heart.
I used sketch #10 from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for my card:
Going along with the summer fruit theme, I did some stamping and paper-piecing with an old retired Close to My Heart set, Summer Sweetness.
Here's the result:
I added some Liquid Glass to make the melon seeds nice and glossy. Some Opaques Licorice Adhesive gems reinforce the seedy theme. I stamped the "rind" of the watermelon with Ponderosa Pine ink, then brushed on some Lagoon ink with a paintbrush, for a shaded look. The sentiment comes from the Chantilly Workshop-on-the-Go. I stamped it twice in two shades of ink, which gives some shadow.
See some more inspirational projects with this colour palette by Amie, Becca, Lela, Marie, Sarah and Pam. Then break out your ink-pads (gold, teal, coral, light blue) and join the Color My Heart dare this week! The challenge runs through Thursday, July 11th.
