Thoughtful Branches {Pineapple}

I'm having a blast with the limited time bundle from Stampin' Up! called Thoughtful Branches. It has really gotten me thinking outside box for some reason. It has such a great selection of stamp images and die shapes.

I woke up this morning with the idea of a somewhat stylized pineapple shape using the leaf canopy from the dies. I think it worked!

The top of the pineapple was made using one of the leaf dies from Botanical Builder Framelits. The "enjoy" came from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the word to make it sparkle a bit. I did a very light watercolor wash behind the pineapple with Bermuda Bay ink. The body of the pineapple is 2 of the leaf canopies. I glued them going opposite directions, so the base layer would show through. I stamped the yellowish layer with Soft Suede using the speckle stamp from Gorgeous Grunge. All in all, a very simple process! If you love the Thoughtful Branches bundle as much as I do, please do not delay in making your purchase. These will only be available through August 31 or until they are gone. See info below for how to get free shipping when you order it from me.
