Happiness is Ice Cream
Today I am sharing my weekly card post on the Artistic Outpost blog and I decided to create a fun Mixed Media card using the brand new Artistic Outpost March Release stamps, Ice Cream Shoppe and Bottle Caps Background.
I am linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ MIX146 “Hmmm...Tasty Treats (Dessert Theme)”Challenge along with the Watercooler Challenges #61 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
I hope you will take the time to visit the Artistic Outpost Blog as well as the galleries for the challenge sites linked above:-)
To create this card:
Cut a piece of ODBDHeart and Soul 6x6 Collection Paper to 4” x 5 ¼”, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Picket Fence Distress Stain over the paper, allow to dry and add Brusho® Brilliant Red Watercolor Powder, spritz to allow the color to run over the paper, dry with the Heat Tool, adhere the panel to a piece of Real Red cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Ink the images from Ice Cream Shoppe and Bottle Caps Background using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Double Stitched Circles Dies to cut out the Bottle Caps Background, the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the sentiment, fussy cut the girl along with the ice cream cone images, use a Sponge Dauber to apply Real Red Classic Ink to the images and apply Tim Holtz® Distress Crazing Medium (it is hard to see the crazing in the photo but it is there :-)).
Mount the die cut sentiment onto Real Red cardstock, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.
Use a 1 ¼” Circle Punch to punch out one of the Bottle Caps Background images and mount the punched bottle cap image onto the card front, add the fussy cut and die cut images using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
