Sweet Life of Summer



Today I am serving some watermelon inspired by the inspiration photo at Jugs and using a sketch challenge for the design.  Watermelon stamp is from Repeat Impressions and the sentiment is from Flourishes, both stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Coloring was done with Copics and a Black Glaze pen (seeds).  I used Cuttlebug EF Gingham on the white background and red panel.  Red check was a digital paper that I printed.


Challenges:
Just Us Girls Challenge: # 299  Inspiration Photo.  I was inspired by the Red and White check tablecloth and the watermelon slices in the truck.
Just Add Ink: Challenge is a sketch
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: Theme is Red, Hot, Summer.  Hot summers bring thoughts of Cold Watermelon.
Simon Says Stamp: Monday Challenge is Summer

Can you believe July is here? 
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Gingham makes me think of summer and picnics and is just the perfect background for your beautifully coloured watermelon Theresa. Love how the rich green tones are so vibrant. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
