My frame is stamped with a retired MFT Plaid Builder stamp. I love the way it allows the silhouette stem to take center stage.

I remember a video where Amy R showed coloring an image on black paper using shades of gold watercolor pigment ink. Of course I had to immediately buy some. Later on I found some pastels of the same watercolor ink. That's what I used here. After heat embossing my image with white powder, I proceeded to watercolor. I let dry and added a second coat but I am truly impressed with the beautiful color.

I must admit that I was struggling with this combination. I have bits and pieces of cardstock all over my desk, but nothing seemed just right. We have had lots of rain here and when it stops, the sunsets have been spectacular. That was my inspiration.

It's raining today so no nice sunshine for photo taking. I really love this die from MFT and the sweet sentiments that go along with it. Nothing says summer like watermelon. It is absolutely my favorite fruit. It reminds me of summers when I was a child. There were 9 of us children so we could consume a watermelon in an afternoon with no problem!
I used my Gina K wreath builder for the center design. I love looking over my stamp sets for small parts. They always seem so lost but when I put them all together look what happens! This is one of my favorite color combinations. I find it very relaxing and I have several friends who are in need of prayers. I'm sending this one to remind them I'm still praying for them.
