Wow! Can you believe half of September is gone?
I'm still trying to wrap my head around August!
Maybe that's a good thing!

Anyway, check out our Inspiration Challenge

September Featured Designer - Sharron Gregory from On Papillon Wings


I bought new summer stamps and I still haven't had a chance to play with all of them, which included a pineapple die from Lil' Inker Designs.  Why I didn't buy the stamp set, I don't know, but I may go back and get it.

There were so many different things I thought about doing with this inspiration photo but in the end I decided to do a negative-type card.  I cut three pineapple masks and taped them to watercolor paper. Next, I made some liquid Brushos --- sprinkled some Brusho crystals in separate spray bottles and added water to each.  I test sprayed, then added more crystals for a deeper color. I also added a bright pink Dylusions spray ink.  

I pulled off the pineapple masks.  I love how this came out!  At first I was going to die cut a black sentiment to put across the middle and then, looking at some small sentiment stamp sets, I decided to stamp a sentiment in each pineapple.  I used "Butterfly Notes" by CAS-ual Fridays for Catherine Pooler. I finished them off with green apple sequins by Paper Sweeties.

So now it's your turn to create something using our Inspiration Challenge photo, link up and share it with us.  

You might be our next Weekly Guest Designer!

The Challenge Blessings!
