The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge ~ Day Six

Hello Friends! How's your Sunday going? I had a super lazy day today and didn't get into my studio until late afternoon. I could not believe how warm it was in my neck of the woods this weekend! I had on my air conditioning and I was running around in a sleeveless sundress and sandals! But...that's the joy or curse of living in sunny Southern California!

Sooo...since it was so hot today, I decided to color up some frosty treats for my color share. I pulled out one of my all-time favorite Simon Says Stamp sets, called Ice Cream Dream. I used the ice cream on a cone and created a really simple card. This one is for a guy, so simple is best.

First, I die cut a panel with the Stitched Rectangle die. Then, using my MISTI, I stamped the images and the greeting, with brown ink. I colored the images with my Polychromos and this time, I blended it out with gamsol and a blending stump.

I can't even express how badly I wanted to add sequins to this card! Or glitter! Or even Crystal Effects! I kept telling myself that this is a guy's card, so forget about the bling. But then something came over me and I grabbed my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen and well...look what I did.

It's just a little sparkle, right? LoL! Next, I matted the focal panel onto blue card stock and adhered it onto my card base with dimensional adhesive. And that was that!

Thank you for stopping in today!

Oh this just makes me smile, Barb! Your coloring is so wonderful. I kept admiring the color and shading you achieved. And hey, if you are feeling the bling, you gotta add it! You can't go wrong with Doodlebug paper, either. I think it's a great guy card! :) Hugs!

I think the WOS sparkle works for this guy card, Barb. Great coloring as always, and I really like the sentiment :)
