Cool Pineapple

Today I have a cool trick to share as well as a cool pineapple card! I've gone with 2 new In Colours - Lemon Lime Twist & Tranquil Tide. My cool trick is in the blending of the 2 colours where they join at the neck of the pineapple. I simply used a tool that was most readily available at the time to blend the colours together ... my finger!! There's no trickery really, but I got a fairly smooth blended look by tapping the colours together with my finger. 

I started by inking the bottom half of the pineapple in Lemon Lime Twist and then carefully inking the tip half in Tranquil Tide. Before stamping down I used my finger to merge the 2 colours together so as to avoid a harsh line between the 2 colours. 

Try making this card!
