Inspired By - Sweet Treats!

The weekend is soooooo close... I can taste it! 😎

This week, the Inspired By challenge has something SWEET to challenge you!

Our cue card will make you mouth water!

While I  adore cake and sweets just as much as the next person... the warmer weather we have finally had made me think of something refreshingly sweet - so it was a very simple watercolor watermelon to tempt your taste buds!

I love my Aqua Painter from Stampin' Up! I used Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush to create that "image" and set it with my heat tool. 
My "seeds" were cut using one of the tiny dies from the Swirly Scribbles set from SU!
It was easy to layer it over  Basic Black CS  and another layer of lighter Flirty Flamingo! 

I had a perfect sentiment in mind for this card - I just had a sweet stamp set from Sugar Pea Design 
happen to show up in the mail (hmmm... imagine that??) ;) It is called "SWEETEN". It sure sweetened up this design, don't  you think?!

I used my Banner Punch and stapler along with some Linen Thread and my Stampin Dimensionals to pop that layer before adhering it to my base. That Cucumber Crush green is the perfect shade... (in case you haven't noticed - ALOT of retired product love went into this card... it is so hard when all of the pretty new SU items are coming out! I stayed strong!) 

My embellishments are simple - a few enamel dots from Crate Paper and some washi from SU! were the finishing touches! 

Our cue card is meant to inspire.... not require ... how will it inspire you? Play along with our weekly challenge!

Happy Thursday!

Love, Peace n' Ink
