Couldn’t resist taking all these little fruits and quickly watercoloring them on a simple notecard–You may not be able to tell unless you click on the pic to enbiggan it, but they’re all sugared up with some glitter glue for extra sparkle and fun! :)
These fruity die cuts were die cut from watercolor paper, watercolored and then 3D popped up over a wash of blue–to enhance the details of the slice and wedge, I free-handed a wriggly, skinny line with a fine tip black marker after they were dry. Glossy Accents makes ‘em juicy…!
I love this pineapple stamp–pineapples just remind me of my mama and make me smile–I simply gold embossed this one and then used some pretty patterned papers that had gold foiling, and some glittery gold washi tape and an acrylic gold accent to set the whole thing off! All that gold makes it feel so luxe and fancy!

I’ve been having way too much fun developing the projects for these classes–can’t wait to share them all on May 21st! Hope you can join me! :)
Because resistance is futile. Gloriously sweet, prickly dimension and detail…
Used my Peerless watercolors this time around. And, I was glad to have the forethought of putting paper towel underneath my project as I watercolored because the paint did seep through the cut lines, naturally. Avoided a hot mess. *more fist pumping*
I like using Distress Paint in Black Soot for spatter; its thicker consistency allows for the color to remain a deep rich black and doesn’t get watered down. It’s also permanent once it’s dry; if I wanted to watercolor over the top of it, the spatter would remain undisturbed. Muy awesome. :)
When I don’t have a stamp with precisely the phrase I need/want, I rely on my Dymo Label Maker…
TO MAKE THIS CARD:
Trim watercolor paper to 4 x 5.25″.
Die cut pineapple into paper.
Color as desired. (I watercolored)
Dry/heat set with embossing gun.
Spatter with black acrylic paint. Dry/heat set with embossing gun.
Pop up details, mount to base card (Standard A-2, 4.25 x 5.5″)
Generate custom greeting with label maker & affix to card as shown.
And, Bob’s yer uncle. ;)
