Watermelon Moon

Hi Everyone,

when I saw the current Male Room challenge I knew immediately I had to play along. Do you fell the same about certain themes? They just speak to you. It took me quite a while to find a "suitable" piece of art, that I knew would work for me. I had actually in the end a whole list available, but I settled for Charlie Harper. I am a huge fan of him.

I just copied his artwork....It is called Watermelon Moon

You can see, he is the better artist....but I am still pleased with it.
I used the cute racoon from a STAMPlorations set called Woodland Friends. I die cut the watermelon with circle dies and the seeds I made with an ancient Martha Stewart punch.

As you can see, I couldn't resist a pun - follow your dreams - those racoons seem to be dreaming of watermelon, ha!

I'd say you nailed Charley in your own inimitable way. Looks perfect to me.

I love this card. Such a cute design but in real life I don't like the raccoons eating the watermelons in my garden. LOL One year we had a huge melon on and I went to gather it in but on further inspection on the other side of it the insides had been all scooped out. One could see the claw prints of the coons that did the dirty deed too!

I am so impressed, you have captured his artwork beautifully. A Fabulous result. I had to look him up though! (most would have to look mine up too LOL) and to see the original and yours, they would be great side by side. LOVE it. Thank you so much for joining us in our Inspired by an artist challenge at The Male Room this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
