Summertime, summertime

Challenge #48 from Pattie's Creations is Summer Time.  What better way to cool down on a hot summer day than to enjoy a nice slice of watermelon?  I remember sitting on my grandmother's back steps and spitting out the seeds onto the ground.  Luckily, we didn't have any ants wanting to join us - at least I don't remember any :-).

The image was printed twice so I could add dimension to the slice of watermelon.  Copic markers were used to color the image and cut using a Spellbinders' die.  The base card is from Doodlebug Design and the sentiment is a rubber stamp from Unity Stamps.  I've had the little ants in my stash forever.

Go check out what refreshing summer time creations the rest of the design team has made just for you and then upload your own creation.  you'll have two weeks and you can use either a rubber or digital stamp.   Be sure to visit Pattie's Esty store to see all the wonderful images she has too.

Copics used: G05, G07, G19, G28    BV29    G20, G21    R32, R35

Adorable Anne! The watermelon looks good enough to eat! The ants are great embellishments!

The best part was spitting out the seeds to see who could get their seeds further!
Great idea with printing the image 2x, it looks dimensional and it looks great!

Anne, Such a adorable card. Watermelon looks so good and I see the Ants think so also. Great idea adding the border with the ants and the scalloped border. Just a wonderful summer card.
Hugs, Patricia
