Painterly Pineapples

It's summer and I'm dreaming of tropical vacations and fruity drinks 
with little paper umbrellas in them.
This week's cue card at CASology is: ROW...and what better than a row
pineapples from Concord & 9th?!

I lined the 3 different stamps up in a row on my MISTI and inked them with Wild Honey Distress Ink. I knew I was going for a painterly look, so I misted them lightly with water before stamping. I did the same with the pineapple top using Peeled Paint DI, followed by a quick pass with my heat tool and then some Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn DIs for a little depth. I swooshed around some Evergreen Bough DI for the background, stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, and glued on a few little sequins.

The DT found lots of interpretations for this week's cue card, so see what they have lined up :)
