#TGIFc248 - Catalog Covers Inspiration

Hey peaches and thanks for joining me for another fun TGIF challenge this week! If you're new to the TGIF Challenges, each Friday, we offer a new themed challenge for you to play along with. Be sure to check out the main blog for more details, inspiration, and the guidelines. This week's challenge is all about the catalog covers. Specifically we are focusing on the new Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs, and there is tons of inspiration to be had with these covers!
Both catalog covers have gorgeous samples, but I was really drawn to the card that is to the right of the purple one. I love the layout and I though it would be a great way to create a card with a lot of color and texture.
My card for this week's challenge was made using a combination of the Tropical Chic Stamp Set and the brand new In The Tropics Dies. Here's my submission:
My inspiration for this colorful pineapple is from something I found on Pinterest and I love all of the rich color!
 To create this rainbow color-licious pineapple, I first die cut a pineapple from the die set from Watercolor Paper. Then, use your Aqua Painter to add your colors in layers, allowing the the color to dry between layers for a more vibrant look. Typically, I like to die cut my images after I've watercolored an area because I find it easier to handle a larger piece of paper, but in this case, I wanted certain areas to be particular colors, co I needed to see my image. For my colors, I used: Melon Mambo, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point, and Bermuda Bay Inks. NOTE: When mixing colors, be careful not to mix pinks/reds with greens, blues with oranges, and yellows with purples. They are complimentary colors and will create a brown tone when mixed. 

To achieve the background look from my inspiration card, I die cut flowers, using the die set, and adhered them to my main panel. I curled up the edges for added dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by and we would love it if you would join in on the fun! Come check out the TGIFChallenges Blog for more information and more challenges!
