House Mouse Challenge #29

Ever just have the right stamp for the right sketch? The moment I saw this sketch, to me, it screamed WATERMELONS! I had recently purchased this little Happy Hopper, the Seed Shooter and was itching to use him...so I did! The circle in the upper right hand corner to me, reminded me of a watermelon, so that's what I went for...and then mimiced it slightly with the strips of paper on the left hand side of the card. The scallop was made with my rectangular scallop die by Nestabilities.
I punched and stickled all of my flowers and then added dew drops on the smaller flowers and a button and a jewelry finding for the larger flower.
I colored my Happy Hopper with Copics. Recipe is underneath...
Recipe:
  • Stamps: Happy Hopper Seed Shooter, Studio G Sentiment
  • Papers: DCWV Nana's Nursery
  • Copics: C3, RV10, R20, R32, YG03, YG11, B00
  • Punches: Flowers by EK Success, Leaves by Martha Stewart
  • Dies: Nestabilities Circle and Rectangular Scallop
  • Other: Stickles, Button, Dew Drops, Jewelry Finding
