shimmer pineapple...

Hello friends!!  Hope your week is off to a good start.  I got to have lunch today (Monday) with a dear friend and it was lovely!   Have a little card to post today for a couple of challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.  A week or so ago I made the pineapple using my Concord & 9th Pop Art Pineapples set, but never ended up using it.  It was just sitting there waiting for me to do something with it.  So I sprayed it with some of the Prima Pearl White Color Bloom and let it dry.  Following the sketch from CTS I added a little nest of silver thread and then layered the pineapple on top.  I die cut the banner (from the Pop Art Pineapples die set) stamped it with the sentiment and layered it on top.  Adhered the panel to a light grey cardstock base.  Once that was done I decided to add a bit more shimmer to the pineapple because the shimmer provided by the color bloom is rather subtle.  I grabbed by Diamond Stickles and added some to the pineapple top.  I was able to get a close up shot of the pineapple so you can see the pretty shimmer.   Super simple card, but that's what I like!! 

Thanks for stopping by today...


Supplies: Cardstock:  white and SSS fog; Stamps:  Concord & 9th; Dies:  Concord & 9th and AJVD; Inks:  Hero Arts and Memento; Silver Thread:  Coates & Clark; Prima Color Bloom:  Pearl White; Ranger Diamond Stickles
