Getting Buggy with Allison

I thought I'd be creative and piece together a watermelon for this card. The theme was using any bug except a butterfly and I pulled out my Bugs and Kisses stamp set and got creative.

I made the watermelon with my Cuttlebug Circle Frame die. Made three of the circles one in Garden Green, one in Whisper White and the last was pixie pink. Afterwards I cut the circles in half. On the pixie pink I used the brush end of my versamarker to make the seeds and embossed them with black ep. I sponged Regal Rose and also Purely Pomegranate. Notice I also added seeds on the background paper and embossed them as well. The ants are also embossed in black. The sentiment is from Sophisticate by QuickStamps (QuickKutz).

The smaller piece of watermelon was from my leftover half of the circles and I took "bites out of it with a 1/4" hole punch and my ticket corner punch.

Paper: Cool Caribbean, :Purely Pomegranate and som random piece of scrapbook paper.
