Life is Better with Ice Cream!
This morning I am sharing another fun Mixed Media card created with the Artistic Outpost stamp sets, Ice Cream Shoppe, Grunge Elements and the Bottle Caps Background along with the ODBD Pastel 6x6 Paper Pack (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).
I wanted to play along with the final Mojo Monday #500 Sketch Challenge (so sad to see this challenge ending but fully understand) along with the Tuesday Throwdown #346 “Sugar High” Challenge and the Happy Little Stampers June Mixed Media “Glitter” Challenge (I am honored to be their Guest Designer this month).
I also used the Splitcoaststampers CC638 Color Challenge into the design. It is hard to see the glitter- I used a Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen for all of the shimmer.
If you have not had a chance to check out the Artistic Outpost blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so! Inspiration is posted each week on the AO Blog/ AO Facebook Page and the challenge galleries have gorgeous inspiration as well!
To create this card:
1). Tap the Distress Oxide ink pads (Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint and Wilted Violet) onto a craft mat, spritz with water and lay a piece of watercolor paper into the ink. Lift up and dry with the heat tool, spritzing additional water as you dry. Keep repeating until you are satisfied with the results.
2). De-static the panel with an embossing powder tool, stamp the Bottle Caps Background stamp with Versamark™ ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.
Add additional distress oxide ink as needed to darken some of the areas and stamp the large splatter image from Grunge Elements with Wilted Violet distress oxide ink. Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of white cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of pear cardstock.
3). On a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” white cardstock, add a bit of the same distress oxide inks onto the panel, trim and adhere the ¼” lavender and rose satin ribbon (wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel). Using the dot stencil, add stenciling with the clear glitter pen. Mount onto the pear card front before adhering to the white card base.
4). Create the vertical panels from pieces of the Pastel 6x6 Paper Pack, mount onto white and pear cardstock. Add to the card front, popping up the lilac panel with dimensional foam.
5). Stamp the ice cream cones from Ice Cream Shoppe with archival black ink, heat set with the heat tool and watercolor with the distress oxide inks (adding vintage photo for the cone). Fussy-cut the ice cream cones, mount onto black cardstock and fussy-cut again. Use the clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the ice cream.
6). Mount the focal image to the card front with dimensional foam, add the ice cream cones and apply clear shimmer to the bottle caps with the glitter pen.
7). Stamp the sentiment from Ice Cream Shoppe with archival black ink onto white cardstock, heat set with the heat tool, trim the sentiment, mount onto pear cardstock and add the sentiment to the card front.
8). Finish off the card by adding Nuvo Crystal Jewel Drops to the corners and focal image panel.
