Happy weekend everyone! We’re having a heat wave here so this card is helping me cool off mentally. 😉 I was very excited to finally make my first order from Reverse Confetti. I love their unique critters and had a really hard time choosing just a couple.
As soon as they came in I couldn’t resist inking them up. Here’s the first card I made.
I knew that I wanted to try keeping my color palette limited and softer than typical so I pulled out some pink and mint and immediately thought brown would go great with it all. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate ice cream???
I colored up my images from Ice Cream Social with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Then I set to ink blending my background with spun sugar and cracked pistachio distress inks. Then I flicked watered down color on the panel.
I used my Newton’s Nook cloudy sky stencil with some texture paste for fun dimensional clouds in the sky. Once this was dry I adhered my panel to a card base. Then I used Newton’s Nook Frames & Flags dies to make a frame and popped it up with foam strips. I used a combination of foam squares and liquid glue to adhere all of my images down next. I stamped my sentiment on a soft pink cardstock and cut it into a flag, then popped it up too.
For finishing touches on this sweet card, I used glossy accents on the critter noses, eyes and toe beans, the ice cream truck window, horn, light and decal on the side of the truck. Then I thought it would be fun to add some sparkly so I used unicorn Stickles on all the sprinkles of the ice creams.
I’m in love with this guys! Totally hooked and can’t wait to create more. I hope you find some inspiration to create something wonderful today!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
