Today is time to play another House Mouse Designs Challenge. Here is a fun image that I love. The theme of this challenge is dots... well I am considering my seeds dots as well as my black paper has white dots.. so this is fitting!. LOL.... Coloring the rind was fun, I wanted to have those dark green stripes so I wet the white area with blender pen then added the light green (YG13, YG03). The wet area allowed the light green ink to bleed into the area that was wet with blender soultion making it look lit it was fading into the white part of the rind. I did the same with the dark green. I made sure the light green area was very wet before adding the dark green allowing the two to blend together a bit for a gradual blend. I like how it turned out. The reds were easy peasy as I love to color with reds. I used R20, R24, R29, and R59. The seeds are even better if you leave a bit of white area for that shinny highlight. They always look better if the area is left white rather than adding a white gel pen on top of the black.
