pineapple hello.




So, I'm a big fan of Neon....reminds me of my youth...LOL.  I'm also smitten with pineapples so I combined the two on this 3.25 x 5.5 inch card:

cardstock:  strathmore watercolor, glitter cardstock from M's  stamps:  reverse confetti/pineapples aplenty & color me happy ink:  hero arts neon pink, hero arts neon orange dauber  other:  reverse confetti/pineapples aplenty confetti cuts

Gotta love the Pineapples Aplenty by Reverse Confetti!

Perhaps not visible is the amount of texture on this card.  I love using watercolor paper as my card base because it gives the overall design a richness.  I added a fun pop of glitter cardstock.

Seriously, how can anyone resist a neon pink pineapple?!

I've been playing more with my highly neglect daubers.  I simply did 3 swipes with the Neon Orange.  The contrast in colors makes me a happy crafter.  

I was inspired by (CAS)E this Sketch:


Rotate and squint :)
