Pan Pastel Watermelon

Ok, once again my post is late, but in my defence, March Break is coming and of course my daughter’s school has a bunch of stuff due.  Tonight I had the joy of working with her on her book report.  Also, we were gone all yesterday.  We have found and purchased an new member of the family.  She will be picked up and brought home next week.  She is the sweetest, most perfect little pooch in the world.  We went yesterday to visit the breeder, and put a deposit on a puppy which was going to be arriving in a month and a half.  Instead we fell in love with a 4 month old.  So next week I will post pictures of our new Bouvier des Flandre puppy.  She has the sweetest disposition, and the most gentle manner, and the most expressive eyes. 

Ok, so on to my card.  I wanted something sweet and summery.  This watermelon fit the bill perfectly.  The stamp is by Peachy Keen stamps, and is colored with Pan Pastels and one Pastel Pencil in White.  I love the soft painting quality of the Pan Pastlel coloring.

  2. Oh my gosh this card is sooooooo beautiful!

    As soon as I saw it I knew there had to be pastels involved. I love the way both of you are incorporating many new techniques into your creations and helping to expand my knowledge of how to use and combine different media. Thanks once again!

  3. I like this card. The watermelon and the colouring style make me think of lazy summer days, porch swings and lemonade. You made me want summer even more than before!

  4. Gorgeous! I am always amazed by the amazing color combinations and coloring skills in your cards!
