Whimsy Inspiration - Summer Watermelon

Hi Everyone!
I have some more Whimsy inspiration to share with you today!

For this card I inked up this sweet little fellow 'Little Jack and Bobbin Summer Watermelon' from Elisabeth Bell, and also used 'Everyday Moment' sentiments by Simonne Clay Designs. Both of these are available at the Whimsy Stamps store.

 
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with Copic markers, and used Pearlescent chalks for a soft sky.

 
I remembered I have this cute digital paper freebie with little wagons and think it was the perfect fit for this little guy ;)



I liked how clean and bright this card came out - I don't often get to make little boy cards with 3 nieces so this was a fun change!

Hope you like it too!
