My daughter and I had what ended up being brunch out today.  We had to run to the music store for a mouthpiece and a practice book – she’s learning a new instrument this summer.  But, the store didn’t open until noon.  So, we opted for eating at the nearby diner which was mostly still in breakfast mode.  After our leisurely meal, we moved the car and walked the couple of blocks up one side and down the other of the retail area near the music store.  It was fun to see what was going on in all of the little shops.  Though this town isn’t far away, it is also not often on our more traveled route.  While she practiced her new instrument, I began work on the card for today’s grad.  She’s given cello lessons this afternoon and soon it will be time to head out for today’s grad party.  I’m glad the kids will have had so many opportunities to get together before heading off to college.

I asked my daughter what she wanted for this card and her response was something with light pink but edgy.

So, here’s my “edgy” Pineapple 🙂

I started with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Night of Navy cardstock base that has been scored down the center.

Then, I added a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Pink Pirouette.

For the 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Whisper White, I stamped the small splatter from Gorgeous Grunge in Night of Navy.

As you can see, the layers were both angled.  They were adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Next, I inked the Pineapple stamp.  I worked from lightest to darkest for two reasons: one the light ink color will not cover the dark color if you happen to over lap; and two and probably most important, you won’t have the darker ink transfer to your lighter pad if you happen to overlap.  Pink Pirouette is on the bottom and Night of Navy is on the top over a piece of Whisper White cardstock..

After cutting out the Pineapple (by hand), I brushed it with the Embossing Buddy and then swiped by Versamark pad across the surface in a random pattern.  It was then heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.  The photo doesn’t begin to show how awesome the Copper is on Pink Pirouette!

Finally, I added two multi-loop Cooper Metallic Thread bows before attaching the Pineapple with Dimensionals.
