Melon thanks!


With Labor Day right around the corner, I decided to use this sweet watermelon stamp today. My inspiration for colors and embellishments came from picnics and bbq's, which I'm sure many of you will be attending this coming weekend! Wouldn't this make a nice thank you card for your host or hostess?
This is a very clean and simple design. I really wanted the watermelon to take center stage. Instead of coloring the image, I paper pieced it. To do this, I first stamped the watermelon on red cardstock and then again on olive cardstock, I trimmed both and then pieced them together. To give it an even more realistic look, I colored the smallest part of the rind with a dark green marker.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon :)

Hi Gezas, i would just like to make an introduce myself to the members at pugnaciousstamps.blogspot.com

Well thats called a delightful message board, I barely care to read out a complete forum section but this forum got my interest and believe me, That?s unusual.

I was looking for some info and was searching on Google Russian for it. I visited each of the top 7 pages that came up but didn?t get any relevant result... I then luckily found your diamond forum in the dirt and thought to check it out. This is just what I wanted! - what a brilliant find!

Thanks people at pugnaciousstamps.blogspot.com and keep the ace effort up!!
