Your Next Stamp Sketch & Color Challenge

This is my first entry into the YNS Challenge and I went with just the sketch for this one.  I had to get some of their adorable stamp sets and really wanted to play with the One In a Melon stamp set.

YNS challenge #89

I love combining black and white with bold colors, especially were watermelon is concerned!  The contrast just helps the images and colors really pop!

I stamped the sentiment repeatedly to make the top strip and die cut a stitch scallop on top.  The bottom strip I repeated the banner and colored with copic markers.  The friend on top I cut multiples out of thick white cardstock, layered, and inked with oxide inks.

The adorable bird on the watermelon is just one of many in the One In a Melon stamp set, they even have little hamsters with watermelon!  I stamped the bird rollin’ on the watermelon and colored with copic markers.

Inside, I die cut with a wonky stitch the black and white pattern paper and added another wonky stitched inked one on top.  I stamped the sentiment which literally describes the image I added (even made my 17 year old son laugh!).


I am so excited to use this stamp set over and over and over again!  I already have some cross stitched watermelon that I’m going to use the hamsters with, so stay tuned…
