Pineapple Vignette Tutorial

Hello! I can't believe it's Friday already. Today I have a pineapple card using images from my new set, Tropical Nature.

I stamped the pineapple with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and began coloring with Y000 Copic marker.

I added Y35.

Then added YG95, outlining some of the segments of the pineapple and to shade the leaves.

Added YG03 to the leaves.

Then filled in with YG91. After coloring, I cut out the image.

For the background, I used Pure Luxury Ivory and stamped one of the split leave philodendron leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black.

Then I used the silhouette of the leaf and stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I stamped  both sizes of the palm fronds with Memento Pistachio ink.

Using my Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur®, I cut out the background with rectangle Nestabilities®. Then I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink, while still in the die template. 

I used BV11 and BV000 to add a shadow and adhered the pineapple with Pop Dots.

The background was layered with Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus and the card base is Sandy Beach, sized at 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches. I added the sentiment, then scored the base with my Scor-Buddy. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. The Gina K inspiration blog hops begin Monday morning!

Google kicked me out, so you may get this twice. What I tried to say was that pineapple looks good enough to eat! Great card.
