Good morning, crafty friends! Last week we had a ton of colorful CAS creations over at CASolgoy! You all rock on RAINBOW challenge! Now it’s time to get creative again. Here is this week’s cue card:
When I heard of STRIPE, I immediately thought of a watermelon. Maybe it was because of my cats licking watermelon in front of me at the moment. (Find my cat eating watermelon HERE on Instagram.) Since it’s my husband’s favorite fruit, we always seem to have a watermelon in our fridge. By the way, do you know how to select a sweet, juicy watermelon? I’ll share you one tip related to STRIPE. Choose a watermelon that has the light green stripes jagged, broken and dark green stripes uniformly dark colored. Why am I talking about watermelon? It’s because I made a card for today inspired by watermelon stripes. Here is what I came up with:
I created a watermelon popsicle card. I loved to eat popsicles on a hot summer day when I lived in Korea. One of my favorite popsicle was a watermelon flavored popsicle, so it was fun to bring my memory in my card. I almost used my Silhouette cutting machine to create a templet of watermelon slice, but I’m glad I didn’t. Instead, I used some sticky notes for masking. Anyway I love how my card turned out. So easy and yummy! What do you think?
This is how I created my watermelon popsicle card. 1)Place some sticky notes as a template to shape a isosceles triangle. 2)Place another sticky note to mask the top of the open area. Then apply color using a sponge dauber and Distress Ink Mowed Lawn. 3)Mask the bottom of the open area. Then apply color through the opening in the mask using a sponge dauber and Distress Ink Festive Berries. 4)Draw popsicle stick using Copic: E34. 5)Draw black dots in the red part to represent the seeds using Copic: C9. 6)Stamp sentiment from Bowtiful Additions stamp set by Waffle Flower Crafts.
That’s all for today. Make sure to check out CASology Challenge blog to see how the rest of the designers interpreted the challenge. Now it’s your turn to play along. I can’t wait to see what clean and simple ideas you all come up with this week. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!
