Hello!! I have a card to share using the Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection stamp set. I had a crazy idea to emboss the pineapple in copper on vellum and so I gave it a try! I really like how it turned out!! Originally I had the vellum pineapple backed with a pineapple cut from black cardstock, but I didn't like it as much as when I die cut the pineapple from dark brown. I will admit that the copper pineapple and the copper Happy Birthday are the third attempts for both. The first two pineapples got ruined and the first two happy birthdays did not die cut well. So you know the say... third times a charm!! The strip behind the pineapple is also copper, but is reading as gold in the photo. I added some splatters using a dark brown watercolor from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set. The panel was trimmed down, the strip adhered and then I added the pineapple and the sentiment using foam dimensionals. I think this would make a great masculine card. I will be adding this to the current Where Creativity Meets C9 anything goes challenge, the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes. I have included a close up of the embossing so you can really see that it is copper and not gold.
Have a wonderful day!!
