Corrosive Challenge #20 - Summer Fun & Papertake Weekly Challenge - My Favourite Things
Janet's Challenge this week over at the Corrosive Challenge blog is Summer Fun. When I got this month's stamps from Dimension Fourth I just knew I had to use them for this :). Papertake Weekly has a theme this week for its challenge of My Favourite Things: vanilla, mint choc chip, chocolate, strawberry and coffee, with a flake on top. Mmm, that about sums up my favourite things :).The set has two different ice cream cones, a tall ice cream glass, an ice cream cup, various scoops of ice cream and some sentiments for good measure. They'll be really fun to use.
I found a pack of yellow pearlescent DL cards in the drawer, I think they were a freebie with something. Anyway, tall and thin was just what I wanted for my card. I stamped the cone twice and used foam pads to give the top of the cone dimension. All the scoops were stamped separately and glued together to build the sort of leaning ice cream cone that you just know is going to melt before you can eat it:). Colouring is done with Copics and Promarkers; I've used Glossy Accents on quite a bit of the ice cream. Yumm....
