Sweet Moments

I took a break from my ant-i-cide and put together a card that has been floating around in my mind for a few days. After I saw this card, I remembered that I had an ice cream sundae stamp in my stash. I guess I am still feeling a bit nostalgic about my Grands, because I really wanted to create something old fashioned looking. So, I used a lot of scallops and a lot of brown. The chocolate ribbon appears darker here than it is in real life. I colored the image with Copic markers and used a gel pen for the whipped cream. The cherry gets its sparkle from Pink Stickles and the hearts are outlined with a red Copic glitter pen.




Supplies- Cardstock:Chocolate, Colonial White (CTMH). Papers:Cheeky Collection-Emery (Making Memories)Stamp:Sparkle Clear Sweet Moments (HeroArts). Ink:Pearlescent Chocolate Brilliance (Tsukineko). Ribbon:Chocolate Brown (Wrights). Color Media:Markers, glitter pen (Copic). Gelly Roll (Sakura). Other: Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders). Scalloped Scissors (Provo Craft).

Wishing you many sweet moments...

What a sweet card, Barb! This brings back my own sweet memories of when my grandpa used to take us kids for ice cream...I'd always get Bubblegum (it was blue with little gum balls in it -lol!). tfs
