Summer Watercolor Challenge

NMBS Swap#2

Well, finally, I got a little bit of stamping in tonight.  Today's SCS Ways to Use It Challenge was to watercolor with reinkers--right up my alley.  The SU blog group I belong to had their challenge up, too:  to use a retired set to make a summer-themed card using Bold Bright colors.  I am willing to bet that many of you have never even SEEN this image before!  This is from a sweet little country SU set called Country Angel, from 1995!!!  As usual, it is pretty simple--my brain just couldn't do complex tonight!

Actually, after I snapped the first photo, I decided to add some sparkle to the inside of the watermelon---if you click on the photo, you might be able to see the Jelly Roll pen glitter around the edge!  This was a fun card to make, and I enjoyed using a stamp set I probably haven't used in five years!!!

Your card is fabulous, LeAnne! Your watercoloring is perfect as usual. Gosh...I wish I could watercolor like you ladies. I'm green with envy in that dept! I rememeber this set from many moons ago. I think my demo may have it.
Nice job!
Happy Monday!
