Woohoo am I ready for summer!! I say that because today was Nick's first day of games for his AAU baseball team, and it was freeeeeeeeeeezing!!!! It was a double header on Cape Cod, right on the ocean, which would be ideal in July…not so much in April! 37 degrees with a wind chill making it feel like 27 is not my idea of a good time! BUT, they did great, Nick hit phenomenal and pitched great too so it was worth it 🙂
Here are the Copic colors I used:
For the watermelon:
For the rind:
You'll notice that on the rind I used the Colorless Blender. This is because for the little section that is the lightest, I had colored it with YG00 first, but I wanted to take some of that color out and make it look like that opaque color you see on a watermelon.
The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Quilting Bee pad, and the ribbon, button, silver cord and silver brads are SU!. I used a Spellbinders Labels Three die for the center piece, along with some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter (both SU!) over the watermelon flesh to make it the "one in a melon" piece 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂
