The Four Seasons Challenge - Pineapple Crush

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy 1st Day of August.  The year is flying by and we are that much closer to Christmas...but I digress.  It's a busy Monday; I have 4 posts scheduled for today so let's get started!

Today begins a new challenge month at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog and this is the last month for a Summer Theme.  The inspiration prompt features lots of color and color inspired my team project.

I love to create with lots of color and I've had the lovely Pineapple Crush set from Impression Obsession in my stash for a while and have never used so when I saw the inspiration photo, I knew exactly this set was the one to use.

Pineapple Crush is a layering set but there are so many ways to stamp the designs without actually layering them.  Also, this is a 5x7" card; a size I seldom create but I wanted to create a landscape format and wanted to stamp 3 of the images so it looked best as a 5x7.   

Using complimentary Catherine Pooler Inks, I stamp layered the pineapples and mini hibiscus flowers.  To be honest, the hibiscus are small and I was having trouble lining them up so I decided to just stamp and if they didn't line up perfectly, they would just look "artsy".

To finish the design, I've added gold iridescent sequins along with black and gold twine.  We hope to see your lovely Summer themed projects at The Four Seasons Challenge this month.  Next month we enter Autumn and then the holiday season...I know, I know!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
