Mo's Challenge #85--sketch challenge

I love working with sketch challenges and most of the time follow them exactly...but we all have to start somewhere right?..Well this week Mo's challenge was a sketch challenge and I have made a card for the challenge...this is what the sketch looks like:



and this is what my card looks like:

I fell in love with the watermelon girl as soon as I saw here and had to color her up asap...lol...I thought about the card a while and decided I needed watermelon slices and went to work looking to purchase some...hmmm....couldn't find any so while searching my dsp drawers I ran onto red glitter paper and lime glitter paper...hmmmmm....do you think I could make my own?...Well after a couple tries this is what I came up with. I used black stickles for the seeds on the glittery watermelons and on the little girls pants and top. I colored her with copics and used clear stickles to highlight her headband and watermelon...(after all a gal needs some bling...lol). The green shimmer paper had all kinds of fun summer words on it and I backed it with SU retired apricot appeal card stock. I used black rhinestones on the nestie and on the dividing embossed paper to simulate seeds. I had fun with this and I hope you like it..

Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time,
Hugs,
Carol
