My Sheri Crafts Challenge #137: Food, Food & More Food!!!

Raquel has asked us to create a project with food, food and MORE food for our new My Sheri Crafts challenge! It should be fun to see what everyone comes up with!

For my simple summer get-together thank you, I've used some 'old' DCWV paper from my stash and a watermelon rubber stamp from 1999 -- yes, I still have many old paper crafting items, which do get used occasionally -- LOL!!!  My markers are pretty dried out, so I inked the stamp's center in Memento's Lilac Posies, lined it up with a Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped onto white CS. My rind was then stamped with PTI's Landscape, edged with Hero Arts' Field Greens inks and lined up again to stamp. The blank area was colored with Sugared Almond Pink Copic Marker and hand cut out before adding it to a Spellbinders' Labels Eighteen die cut. I like the shaded effect the two greens gave the rind. Finishing off this bright card I chose a grosgrain striped ribbon I've had for ages to tie across the bottom and tied on a pre-stamped small tag from my stash with twine.

Watermelon is a huge FAV @ our house still, just like it was when I was a child! I'll be anxious to see your food projects @ My Sheri Crafts!!!
