MCT Tag It - Watermelon Card

Hello! It's Tag It Tuesday at MyCreativeTime. I used the tag from the Holiday Tags set. I created the "watermelon" background paper after being inspired by Denise on Periscope as she made a treat bag from a kit. I blended Twisted Citron distress ink onto watercolor paper, and then used the Stripey Background and Mowed Lawn distress ink. I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping to get a loose impression. {I now know that stamp is retired. oops. But you could easily just paint stripes} :) I made the watermelon with circle dies. Colored it with distress inks. The face is from the You Make Life Sweet set. The greeting is from the Sweet Wishes set. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more projects.
