Watermelon Fun


The current challenge on Sugar Sweet Paper Treats is to use fruit in your project. Immediately I thought of cherries since I love them and I have a ton of cherry stuff, but I wanted to challenge myself, so I decided on watermelon. It's the perfect size for this little pixie to sit on. The watermelon is cut from Stretch Your Imagination out of coredinations cardstock, Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper and some green polka dot paper I found in my stash. If you don't have this Lime Rickey paper pack, it is a must for Summer projects. Cindy at www.stampingscrapping.com has the best prices around. This paper pack is also the prize for the challenge currently going on at Scrappy Frogs I stamped the little pixie from CC Designs and colored her with copics and sat her on the watermelon. I took the little watermelon from the Peachy Keen scent with love set (sold only at stampingscrapping.com) and stamped it back and forth to make a border. Then I colored them with copics and covered it in liquid glass to make them look juicy. For a finishing touch I added a petaloo flower with a button and some ribbon (thanks Sheri).
