Anyone for Icecream?

Hi!

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge.  It was a colour combination I found particularly challenging.


When I do a colour challenge I usually pull out the supplies I have in the colours and just play around with them until I am inspired.  I reckon this time I sat there for a full hour before I was inspired.  Here's what I eventually came up with:


I used the technique where you turn the inkpad upside down and bang it on your cardstock on the Sahara Sand cone.  It gave it a nice visual texture that made it look like a waffle cone.  Sorry - I can't remember the name of the technique.  I used Crystal Effects and glitter on the icecream to give it a bit of texture too.

Stamps: Curly Cute
Ink: Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand
DSP/Card Stock: Celebrations DSP, Bashful Blue, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Scallop Edge Border Punch, 1 3/4" Circle XL Punch, Crystal Effects, Glitter, Dimensionals, 1/4" Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)

Catch you later,

Tina

  6. Gorgeous! I had to giggle at your comment about getting inspired. When it doesn't happen for me, I usually stalk out of my craft room in a huff declaring that "stamping is a stupid hobby" and I occasionally mutter something about burning all my supplies... LOL. :-)
