Clearly Besotted Teasers | Thanks A Melon

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted July 2020 Teasers.  For my card today, I am using the super cute Thanks A Melon set. This is such a cute set with turtles eating melon and riding on a fun splash/wave!

I started off my card by stamping the background scene from the Clearly Besotted Thanks A Melon Stamp Set (it is one stamp) on to a panel of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured it using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area), fading the sides off to white using dots. The panel was then adhered to an A2 white card base with tape runner.
I then stamped the turtle eating the melon (there are a few in the set) on to white cardstock with black ink. I made a mask for him and stamped the rubber ring/float on top so that when I removed the mask, it looked like he was sitting on it. I thought it reminded me of a lazy river type scene and that he is floating around it, enjoying eating watermelon as he goes around!
He was then fussy cut out with scissors and added to the card with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was then cut in to a strips and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the images.
