Well hello again my crafty friends,I am back again after a couple of weeks break from crafting due to a nasty flare up of my M.E,but I am feeling much more human again I am glad to say. I have spent the last two days in my craft room making this months card for http://gruffiesandguests.blogspot.co.uk/halfway reminder for our challenge, anything goes/make it fruity.
I must say it was so nice to get back to doing what I love,I hate it when I am not up to crafting. I really enjoyed making this card to as it was two 1st's for me 1) my 1st ever rocker card and I am not even sure I did it the proper way but I did it my way," I feel a song coming on lol". and 2) It was my 1st time trying a bit of water colouring.
I started with cutting a large circle out of some grand circle die's I have and folding it in half,then I had a half circle set from cheery Lyn that I bought and thought I would never use but thought they would make a nice cutout on the bottom of the card so I cut them out of some green card a layered it over the top of the base white card. Then I used the same die to cut the outer circle in pink for the topper and layered that with a slightly smaller circle in green glitter card and then in water colour card. Then I painted the background scene to go with the image and layered on the image by decoupaging it. for the seeds in the water melon I used liquid pearls in black and the other seeds I had to cut out one by one and add them to the finish picture,but I think it was worth the effort as it bought the scene to life. I hope you like it and maybe you will try something you haven't done before to. Happy crafting :)
