TGIF #459 - Sketch Challenge

It's time once again for the TGIF Challenge!! The last two weeks have been an AMAZING whirlwind ... we went to PERU and climbed up and down mountains/stairs discovering and appreciating the beautiful scenery and many ruins, including Machu Picchu! I spent a little time yesterday winding down whilst watching a movie and stamping ... great way to spend some relaxing time!

If there is a stamp set with any fruit, vegetable or FOOD in general, I am IN IT!!! One of this year's Sale-a-Bration offerings is this adorable Watercolor Melon set ... I love it! I stamped the watermelon slice with Flirty Flamingo and then used a sponge dauber to add a little bit of Sweet Sorbet to intensify the "watercolor" effect. The rind and leaves are stamped in Garden Green. And of course the seeds are Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
The Deckled Circles Dies were embossed using the Raindrops Embossing Folder (they kind of look like watermelon seeds, right??). The Basic Black Cardstock panel is also embossed, but it is kind of hard to see in the photo unless you get really close!

Stamps: Watercolor Melon
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sorbet, Garden Green
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sorbet, Garden Green, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories: Deckled Circle Dies, Sentiment Silhouettes Dies, Raindrops Embossing Folder, 1/4" Black Gingham Ribbon, Brushed Metallic Dots

Peru is only 2 hours ahead of home as far as time zones, so why is it soooo hard to readjust to "normal"??? It's been almost a week .... I need another vacation!
