Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - April 1 - Enjoy Today - Happy Birthday!

Hello stampin' friends! Welcome to the NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Neon Nicknacks. Yet another FUN challenge...I was totally inspired by the photo and reached for my Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty Stamp set and Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts.

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

I took inspiration from the photo for my colour palette too and used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Black Licorice and Sour Apple. I also used MFT Premium Dye Ink Lemon Drop, Razzle Berry, Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green.

I've been on a bit of a "watercolouring" kick as of late and I wanted to make my own watercoloured paper with my MFT Fishnet Stencil inspired by THIS tutorial post/video by Barbara Anders on her fabulous blog Paper Pursuits and the green pineapple nicknack in the inspiration photo. I decided to use my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers instead of an inkpad and waterbrush. I used the the Pink, Light Green and Lemon Yellow markers and water to watercolour in each section of the stencil on Ranger Watercolour paper. I then cut the sheet down with the stitched rectangle die in Blueprints 13. I added a few splatters with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black Velvet.

I stamped and cut out several pineapples with the Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty Stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts. I also used the NEW Reverse Confetti Swirlies Confetti Cuts. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in AC Zing White embossing powder from the With Love Sentiment Stamp set on Black Licorice Heavyweight Cardstock cut with the wavy banner from the NEW Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts

I finished off the inside of the card while I was at it and and another watercoloured stencil strip of paper and added a white embossed sentiment stamped from the With Love Sentiments Stamp set. I embellished with another Razzle Berry pineapple.
