This week's CASology cue card is Fruit!
I feel like I've made a 'melon' watermelon cards this summer! One I made for my Dirty Dozen debut (you can join up to be a Splitcoaststamper Fan Club member to see it), and for One-Layer watermelons, see this post). But, really, what's better on a hot sultry summer day than some cool, juicy watermelon.
I wanted this card to be different than my previous watermelon cards. I really thought about the essence of a watermelon - to me it's the pink and green colours, the round shape, and the seeds (although we don't seem to have watermelon with seeds anymore, do we?).
The watermelon and its skin were made by masking and then sponging with distress inks (Worn Lipstick is the perfect watermelon pink). I used a small flower petal stamp for the seeds and Lawn Fawn's Harold's Alphabet for the sentiment - this alpha is great to work with because it doesn't matter if you don't get it perfectly straight!
Don't forget to check out the blogs for the rest of the Design Team and see what they've made for you:
Now, off you go - be "fruitful" and link up to CASology - can't wait to see what you make!
