More pineapples!!!

Hi! I've got another pineapple for you! This fun little stamp is really growing on me. At first I wasn't sure I should get it but then I thought it was cute and searched for pineapple stuff on Pinterest and just found a bunch of super cute things! Now that I've played with it a bit it's so fun! Today's card was a bit of a mishap that I think turned out fine. When I originally stamped the pineapple on the cardstock, my inks were coming out a little bubbly and just weren't stamping right onto the cardstock. So the next time I tried it, I used my aqua painter to blend it a bit. Once I did that, I lost the lines/details of the stamp but that's ok, I liked the look. I did go back with my markers and tried to recreate some of the leaft and pineapple lines. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but they are there. Then I went back with my wink of stella and added some shimmer. So now the pineapple has a shimmery watercolor look. For the white background I used a stencil from the retired banner kit (I forget what it's called) but any stencil would work for this technique. I took some texture paste and used it over the stencil to add this little detail. It's so quick and simple to add a bit of dimension. The only downside is that is does take a little time to dry. After that I added some strips of DSP and glimmer paper and the sentiment. This sentiment is from the February 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. I love this font!

So what do you guys think of the pineapple?? Are you loving it yet?
