Curtain Call - Watermelon Wonder!

When I knew that my dear sweet pal Barb had joined the fabulous team at Curtain Call, I knew I was going to be playing along as much as I could! This inspiration board had me, well, INSPIRED, right away, and I practically ran over to my desk to make my card.


I found myself inspired by the colours, and especially the photo at the top left - simultaneously making me think of polka dots & flowers. Check it out:



Supplies: solid circle stamps from PTI; sentiment from Hero Arts; 1/8" quilling strips; yellow & aqua gems; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Distress inks: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold

I used a variety of inks stamping the circles, and used generational stamping to get more shades. The stamped panel was cut a little smaller than the card base, and swiped against the Gray Flannel pad for definition.




Watermelon Wonder at Curtain Call is open until August 10th, so you have lots of time to create something & join in!
xoxo,
Jessi

Gorgeous, Jessi! Your quilling always blows me away! Love the random dots, too. I'd never have thought to do something like that, but it looks amazing with the flowers over them.
