Thanks a melon....!!

 Hey friends...

It's Ash and I have a slimline card to share today featuring a juicy watermelon theme using the Melon friends stamp set by Gerda Steiner designs!!

To create this card I started with a base of watercolour cardstock and masked off the bottom half so I could create an inked piece using Martini ink from Catherine Pooler....

Once I had the colour down I stamped on the fabulous watermelon border design from Melon friends using Versa Claire black ink and then gave it a splatter with CPD Midnight ink!!


I coloured in the super cute Dino eating his watermelon with Parkoo alcohol markers and added him to the card base using foam tape for dimensions....

A WOW! Gold embossed sentiment on black cardstock then fussy cut and some sequins finished the card off!!

I hope you enjoyed this watermelon themed slimline, hugs Ashlee
