Ice Cream Shoppe- Life is Better with Ice Cream!
I hope you are having a great week so far! I had fun designing this Mixed Media card for this week’s Splitcoaststampers SC612 Sketch Challenge using the Ice Cream Shoppe along with the Bottle Caps Background from Artistic Outpost by Our Daily Bread Designs.
I decided to pull out my sewing machine and incorporated the TGIF #74 “Sewing & Stitching” Challenge into the design :-)
If you have not had a chance to visit the Artistic Outpost Blog or the SC612 and the #TGIF74 challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
Lay the flourish
stencil over a piece of white cardstock and lightly brush the pale pink distress stain over the stencil, lift and re-position the stencil a bit to the left and apply a pale gray distress ink with the stencil brush.
While the stencil is still in place, use a clear glitter pen over the entire area.
Distress the edges of the panel as well as the wedge shaped piece of the pink swirl patterned paper from the ODBD Beautiful Boho 6x6 Paper Pad, use a zig-zag stitch to attach the background pieces to the black cardstock panel and mount onto the white card base.
Ink the Bottle Cap Background and the ice cream cones from Ice Cream Shoppe using black archival ink onto white cardstock.
Fussy-cut three bottle caps along with the ice cream cones and layer onto black cardstock (fussy cutting the images again).
Die cut three circles from black cardstock using the ODBD Double Stitched Circle Dies and mount the circles directly onto the card front.
Layer the fussy-cut bottle caps with dimensional foam over the circles, add the looped silver metallic thread and mount the fussy-cut ice cream cones with dimensional foam as well.
Heat emboss the sentiment from Ice Cream Shoppe with white embossing powder, hand trim and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.
Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the ice cream as well as the bottle caps to finish off the card.
Thanks again for stopping by- hugs and enjoy the rest of your week, my friends!
