Two For The Price Of One...

Hi folks, it's Friday and I'm sharing two cards for the price of one from Simon Says Stamp Cool Summer July Card Kit, again only using the stamps from the One Cool Pineapple stamp set.
I die-cut a panel from Simon Says Stamp White Cardstock using Wonky Rectangles and stamped the pineapple image and sentiment with Simon Says Intense Black Ink. I then stamped the sunglasses on top with Intense Black and added Glossy Accents.
I coloured the images and around the sentiment with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and added splatters of Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink, highlights to the pineapple and sentiment with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen and matted the panel on to a card blank coloured with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink using the direct to paper technique.
I used all the same techniques for the Cactus Stuck On You card panel, added Summer Gold Sequins from the kit, glossy accents to the pot and the sentiment and matted on to a card blank coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.

I've just realised it's FRIDAY THE 13TH...oh dear, best keep my head down today and try and avoid the gremlins.Have a great weekend whatever you have planned and I'll see you all on Monday with my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and here's a little sneaky peek
