Stand Tall

Here's my card for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I used pineapple themed stamps and dies from Paper Smooches for my design.

Stand Tall card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I went with a slightly muted color scheme, using a pale green cardstock panel and a mustard-y yellow dotted patterned paper strip to create my backdrop on a kraft card base.  The pineapple image was colored with Copic markers, then cut out with the matching die.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the green panel over twisty loops of gold thread.  The "stand tall" sentiment was stamped to the left of the pineapple in green pigment ink.  A few sparkly gold glitter enamel dots arranged around the pineapple and thread completed the card.

Materials Used:
Pineapple Crush and Pineapple Crush 2 stamp sets, Pineapple Crush Icons dies (Paper Smooches); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Lemon Grass pigment ink (Avery Elle); markers (Copic); Spring Moss and Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Boy Oh Boy 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); gold thread (Michaels); gold glitter enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
