Hello friends! It's time for another challenge over at Just Us Girls and this week is our Photo challenge. Look at the fun summery photo Bobby chose.
I started by stamping this watermelon image from an older Stamp-a-Faire PTI set. It's a three-step image. I stamped the leaves/rind in green, then the meat of the watermelon in red, and the seeds in black. Then I pulled out a scrap of the red check pattern paper and die cut a pinked edge square. Once that was done, I took a piece of watercolor paper and used the same green ink to paint a square-ish splotch on it, big enough to accommodate the checked piece. I layered this on top of a black banner which grounds it. I stamped the sentiment and added sequins. There's glossy accents on the seeds and shimmer on the watermelon.
I used this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our July guest on the JUGs blog.
