Feeling a little Fruity :)

Hee hee, I'm playing along today with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Girls and they have a fruity challenge for us, and they are also helping show off the brand new Watermelon set from Flourishes.  It is SO fun gang!


I love the mixed elements in this set, you can go traditional with it or a little playful....I chose to go a little playful with these watermelon pieces.  


Do you see how Marcy drew the watermelon with the feeling of gingham and ric-rack?  CUTE hey?  That's what inspired the ribbons on this card.  I used an OLD pack of paper called Berry Sweet from K & Co that I had in my stash.  The slices are colored with Copic Markers and I've colored them twice popping up one layer. 


Delicious looking isn't it?  :)  In Mexico we'd sprinkle a spice onto the fruit (like watermelon) called Tajin...it's a lime chilli flavor and YUM is it ever good!  This reminds me of those times.  Now we've found places where we can buy it here and enjoy it too!

Alright gang...the Friends of Flourishes Blog Team have tons more to show you today...be sure to check them out and join in on the Fruity Challenge!
