FMS228 - Watermelon BlossomWell, all I can say is thank goodness for Freshly Made Sketches!!  The beginning of the flying month held 8 out of 11 days gone from home so I can safely say that stamping was pretty much off the table.  Then I came home to a house full of sick boys (big and little, alike!) and the last few days haven’t allowed much time to myself.  Thankfully, I got to the stamp room for a few minutes yesterday and got to try my take at Kim‘s super fun sketch.  I was feeling absolutely NO mojo when I walked in.  Totally distracted and my brain racing will all the stuff I need to get done.  But her sketch seemed so perfect when I looked around at my stamps.

I had this old retired set, Betsy’s Blossoms, sitting in my closet but it virtually jumped off the shelf for this one.  I thought it might be fun to use it with updated colors and I fell in love with it all over again!  I stamped the flower in Watermelon Wonder, added mask and then stamped the leaves using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut a piece of Basic Black to look like a label and added the sentiment from Lil’ Inker Designs Fancy Feathers set.  It was stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I added a layer of black to make the white pop and put it on a Watermelon card base.  Super simple but I really love how modern it looks!!

I’m hoping to get back to some more stamping today and tomorrow and I should be back for an early edition of Fancy Friday later this week.  Until then, I hope you’ll go enjoy the inspiration from the team!  See you soon!
