Melon Thanks


Today i have a nice spring card for you, because you know spring has to come sometime! I see little itty bitty signs of it here and there! Since its been such a long winter i have been so drawn to spring colors and images. Today i am playing with a fun stamp from Penny Black!! I can't stop inking up this stamp and playing with the matching stencil! I'm sure i'll have more project to share in the coming weeks!!

I am entering this card in Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking's March Gallery Challenge. The theme is melon and mint. This card has a lot of melon with just a pinch of mint!!!

To start i stamped the Penny Black's flower image with watermark ink and embossed in with clear embossing powder on watercolor paper. I used some PTI Melon Berry ink to color with flowers. Their ink works well with water, kind of like watercoloring. I also used Spring Moss for the leaves.

Next i stamped the sentiment Thanks and added some enamel dots, in melon and mint (here is the pinch of mint!!)  I also pierced some holes along the bottom and threaded some twine. I tied it in a bow at the left and added a melon dot to the center.
