Pineapple with Copper Highlights

Pineapple, Faux Patina, Stampin' Up!You may remember several of my cards this past May where I used copper embossing powder with a Faux Patina technique.  This is the last piece of my cardstock and textured experimentation during that time period.  The focal image is the new stamp set “Pineapple” from the Stampin’ Up! 2016 annual catalog.

As with the prior examples the faux patina was created using sponging of ink colors that included Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach and Dapper Denim. The cardstock was then dry embossed with the Brick Wall textured impressions folder.  I decided to sponge Emerald Envy ink before adding the copper emboss powder and was really pleased with the overall result.  My initial discussion of the Faux Patina technique can be found in this post.

The Pineapple image was inked in Old Olive and Delightful Dijon, fussy cut and set aside.  Then the fun of adding the various panels of colors began.  You might have thought this combination would not work, but the overall result is quite pleasing.  The DSP print is from Affectionately Yours.  It is a color combination of Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake.  Using the Peekaboo Peach cardstock with vertical panels and Dapper Denim with horizontal panels finished the main panel which was then adhered to a Basic Black card base.  The additional bling is provided by Basic Black solid baker’s twine and Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes.  Thoughtful Banners stamp set provided the thank you sentiment image.  I could not bear to throw away the excess faux patina cardstock, so it was used in the inside along with a piece of copper designer washi tape from the Affectionately Yours collection.

Hope you have enjoyed this card.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Have fun stamping,

    Wow! Nothing says “thank you” like a big ole pineapple on a card! Your card is wonderful with the background faux patina to make the stamped image really stand out so beautifully. I love your choice of colors. I tried to do this technique a few weeks ago and it is tricky to get it right, so I will have to keep trying. Off to pin…
