YNS Sketch & Color Challenge #95


YNS Sketch & Color Challenge #95

These colors remind me of Christmas, but since I live in Minne’snow’ta, I wanted to hang onto summer as long as I can, so I went with watermelon colors instead!  I used one of my absolutely favorite stamp sets, One In a Melon!

I shifted the sketch a little bit and added three ovals instead of one and used most of the colors in this adorable card.

I started my card by trimming a strip of the green pattern paper and gluing on the top of the woodgrain paper.  I die cut this into a stitched rectangle and then die cut it again with three stitched windows.  I glued green cardstock behind the windows and adhered to black cardstock.  I trimmed two stripes of black cardstock and glued between the two pattern papers.

I stamped the cute little hamsters using memento black ink and colored with copic markers.  I die cut the stitched banner and heat embossed the sentiment with black.  I pop dotted the banner and then the little hamsters above inside the ovals to add dimension.  For my embellishments, I added some large black enamel dots.

Inside, I die cut a stitched square and heat embossed the sentiment with black.  I added a cute hamster to the bottom corner.

Who doesn’t love cute little hamsters with watermelons?!  The One In a Melon stamp set also has a set of birds with the watermelons, which allows me to create twice as many designs with one stamp set!

Thanks for swinging by,
