 What's Happening Thurs 6/17:

    Stars & Sparklers Scrapbooking

   Watermelon - Seedless or Not

    As far as watermelon to eat I prefer no seeds but the ones with the black seeds tend to be sweeter. When younger I use to put salt on watermelon. Not sure why. No longer do that.

  To use the stamp/die set to make some watermelon I liked adding the seeds so follow along with the pictures and see how I made the watermelon.

  I discovered that some times I prefer to die cut the image first and then stamp which is the case with the watermelon.

  I discovered that it was better looking to stamp the red of the watermelon first and then line up the rind, stamp the rind & then stamp the seeds. I also used a pencil color to fill in some of the rind. Think that it would also look good using a dauber to add ink to outer part of rind.

 I use a MISTI for most of my stamping but a block could also be used. If using a block then you would still line up the stamp and then lift onto block.
