Kitty ‘n Pumpkin from Whimsy Stamps

Pumpkin? No way, there are no pumpkins found around this time of year. But watermelons? Oh yea, lots of those! For this project I was inspired to take a Halloween stamp and give it a summertime revamp. This is Kitty ‘n Pumpkin and it was simple to change that pumpkin into a watermelon. After all, they’re both from the same plant family… cucurbitaceae is what Google tells me.

While coloring this image, I recorded the process for the watermelon. Because the watermelon’s coloration isn’t precise, that makes it an easy pattern to duplicate. I started with the darkest color and scribbled on some stripes. Then I scribbled in lighter colors until the it was all filled it. There are a few other things I did but you can watch the video if you’re interested.
After the image was colored, I added a few highlights with the white gel pen. I loved converting this image from a Halloween theme to the summer theme. Plus I’ve been craving some watermelons so this was a perfect fix for me. I can imagine the nice hollow sound this one would make!
I kept the card simple but cut out two layers using some generic dies to make this square card. I then popped one of the layers up with foam tape and lastly added a few gems.
