The Card Concept - Tropical Treats

Check out the new inspiration board over on The Card Concept blog!
 The theme this week is: Tropical Treats
Everyone is welcome to play along using the colors, the theme, 
textures, items, or just anything from the picture as your starting point.

I was inspired by the watermelon jello cups to create this
mixed media shape card.

To create my watermelon background I cut a piece of  watercolor paper with an oval die and painted it with mowed lawn and fossilized amber distress oxides. I then added jagged stripes and splatters with pine needles distress oxide.
