Two Cards featuring Fruit
Time for some "Twofer Cards" and this challenge #24 the theme is FRUIT.
I chose a 'half watermelon' stamp as my feature... with a friendship card and a birthday card.
For my first card I stamped the watermelon - two images, watercoloured them with Twinkling H2Os and fussy cut them out. Then I stamped the sentiment in black and clear embossed it, then cut loosely around it. To finish I found some pale green strip DP, sponged the edges for the background and a length of pink spotty ribbon and arranged the elements with foam tape.
Here is a close up...
My second card features the watermelon as the background... randomly stamped the image and watercoloured with Twinkling H2Os. Next I stamped the wine glass, and watercoloured it too and fussy cut it out. I used two stitched die cut circles to arrange my glass and display the stamped sentiment .. sponged the edges and wrote 'watermelon wine' around the edge... I'm sure a couple of friends would love to share a cool glass of watermelon wine -- from Tom T Hall; Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine.
Here's a close up too....
