For today’s post I’m sharing my swap that I did for June. Our theme was “summer”. I knew right away that I had to use the pineapple for these cards. Then I decide to do some water coloring in some colors that mean summer to me. The background was watercolored with Tempting Turquoise, a little bit of Bermuda Bay and some Dapper Denim. I did this all on shimmer paper. For the pineapple and leaves I stamped them and added a darker color to each of them and then I dapped my aqua painter on it to give it a water color effect before stamping it onto the paper. Then I cut out all of these pineapples!! Luckily it was only 6 of them I had to cut out. I stamped one of the sentiments from Thoughtful Banners onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock. The finishing touch is sequins (of course!) and a cute bow clip.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card!
