Pineapples

Not my favourite fruit or my favourite lolly either - and very hard to get inspirations from, but that is Gin's choice over at The Lollipop Ladies for this fortnight's challenge, and I don't mind telling you - it's a challenge for me!


It's time for a new challenge and so this fortnight we're focussed on...

Pineapples


With the additional challenge of Triangles
Guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
and our sponsor this fortnight is: Mad for Markers*
(thanks to Sammi).
A choice of 3 of her M4M digi stamps.
So cool :-)

So, here is my poor attempt at this challenge.


I'm knee deep in Christmas cards and I knew I had used my Copics to coloured up a green angel so I got her out (LOTV image of course) and die cut her out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die.  I stippled some Distress ink - Ocean Blue - around her and put her on the embossed background, with a Memory Box die cut - Frosty Border. 

Where I hear you ask are the triangels triangles? I can see a few - there is one on the top of the border, the wings of the angel are triangular in shape...........alright, I'll admit they are a long shot, but they are there! 


You can also see the AtyaSpiker pen glitter on the wings of the angel and her hair etc better in this photo. I added some bling to her wreath as well to make her sparkle more. Hope she pleases - not some much green and yellow but it's just to get those creative juices flowing folks you know!
