Watercolor Watermelon

Stamplorations is hosting a fun World Watercolor Month link party in July that I wanted to play along with.  I painted both the background and those little slices of watermelon using diluted distress oxides. I think the chalkboard effect of my sentiment sort of gives the card a "fruit stand" feel -- now I'm hungry for something juicy, cold, and sweet!

Supplies and Tools:

  • Canson Watercolor Paper
  • These colors of Distress Oxide (Ranger):
    • Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Lucky Clover, Black Soot
  • Metallic Sequin Black Acrylic Paint (Folk Art)
  • Joy Say It Big Series (Stamplorations)
  • Brilliance Moonlight White Ink (Tsukineko) 
  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • White Embossing Powder 
  • Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (Ranger)
  • Picket Fence Distress Stain (Ranger)
