I was really inspired by the Gossip Column Challenge over at Winnie & Walter and wanted to make a few cards on the theme of summer fruits. It's a super fun theme! Don't you think? I discovered that I did not have any fruit related stamps! So I did the next best thing :) I decided to experiment with the ones I already had to make fruity shapes. I made 3 CAS cards out of my lil experiments.
This is the first one which is a top folding A2 size CAS One Layer card. I used a yellow colored cardbase to keep with the summery theme. To make the watermelon shape, I inked up part of the big circular stamp in the W & W Tree for All Seasons stamp set with zig markers and then stamped with that. Added a few black dots for the seeds. And poof! I had my watermelon image! I did not spritz the stamp with water because I wanted a look similar to Gelli printing. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same set in versafine onyx black ink and added a little shadow underneath the slice of watermelon with a grey zig. Finally, stamped a little heart (from the W & W Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs) using a red zig on the stamp.
Here is a photo of the card:
