All You Need is Ice Cream!

Hello Friends! I have another ice cream card to share with you. This is such a fun stamp set and it was my desire to create a card using each of the stamps in the set, got in the way. I've used the same image as my previous card, but rather than use glitter, I used Prismacolor pencils.

I stamped the image onto Papertrey Ink's Stampers Select card stock. I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink for the stamping. Then I colored the images and blended everything out with Gamsol. I used the polka dot stamp from the set and Orange Peel ink from Simon Says Stamp to create that little border on the bottom. I stamped the greeting in Audrey Blue ink, also from Simon Says Stamp...LOVE that color! Then I adhered all the pieces and gave all of the scoops of ice cream a coating of Rock Candy Distress Stickles.

Here's a closer look for you. The Rock Candy Stickles leave chunks of glitter that look like sugar! I applied it with a paint brush to get even coverage. Make sure you clean the paint brush immediately, so it doesn't get ruined.

I added a few Sprinkles from the Doodlebug Spring assortment and tied on a bit of Caribbean Baker's Twine to finish off the focal. A strip of patterned paper on my card base adds a splash of color and also served as inspiration for the colors on the ice cream cone.

*I am entering this card into the ANYTHING GOES challenge at Simon Says Stamp.*

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful and SAFE Labor Day Weekend.
