Summer of colour–watermelon doodles

The sixth week of ice-cream colour inspiration already, it went so fast.  This week the inspiration was glorious shades of deep red

sc-6-palette

Withe the gradations of the red I decided to create an ombre background and then use some doodle burshes in Photoshop elements for the letter.  This one is by far the simplest of the 6.

It provides a nice contrast in the full set

I’ve really enjoyed this series and am very pleased with the result – now I need to decide how I’m going to print and display them.

I’ve also enjoyed enormously visiting the many blogs from others participating and enjoying all the creativity there. Big thank you to Kristin for organising this inspiring event.

Like the "e" a lot and the set looks terrific. Doodle brushes? I don't know how to use Paint Shop but doodle brushes sounds like something I would love. Anyhow, good work!
