FS548 - Sweet

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper, Donna (aka D. Daisy). I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Donna's:
-watermelon theme and colours
-sweet sentiment
-partial circle element

I changed:
-reversed design (watermelon background with white focal element)
-orientation of card

What is more summery than watermelon? I watercoloured my background using Catherine Pooler Inks, blending colours to get different shades. I splatter some black 'seeds' and then popped my sentiment up on a partial doily die cut.

I am also linking up to CASology 260 

I used:

Catherine Pooler I Pick You

Catherine Pooler Inks: Lime Rickey, Melon Ice, Party Dress, Tutti Frutti, Midnight

Catherine Pooler Naturally Inspired Collection Stamp of Approval Spiro Doily Die (sold out)
