Deconstructed Sketch #164 by Tammy Hershberger

A long time ago, the idea kept popping into my head to make a watermelon using the big circle dies in the Blueprints 16 set from My Favorite Things.  And the half-circle element in the sketch kept speaking to me so this is what I came up with!  I cut the watermelon rind using Gumdrop Green card stock, and stamped it in Gumdrop Green hybrid ink with the BG Diagonal Stripes background.  The watermelon flesh was made using Wild Cherry card stock, and I made the seeds using the leaves from Die-Namics Flower & Leaf Trio and Black Licorice card stock.  The card base is Sweet Tooth card stock, and on it I layered a Wild Cherry card stock panel backed with Black Licorice card stock, and stamped in Sweet Tooth pigment ink with the BG Gingham background.  Behind the watermelon is a piece of Black Licorice card stock that was embossed using the Polka Dot Cover-Up die.  I added some Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX in Sweet tooth card stock, and a black twill ribbon tab at the bottom to finish the design.

On the inside, I added a very simple sentiment stamped in Gumdrop Green hybrid ink from the Chocolate Sentiments stamp set…
