Life is Better with Ice Cream- for sure!

Hi Friends! 

I wanted to play along with a few online challenges and decided to use a few Artistic Outpost (AO) stamp sets from the Spring 2016 Release - Ice Cream Shoppe, Bottle Caps Background and Grunge Elements along with ODBD Tag Trios Dies, Mini Bow Die and Bitty Borders Dies (all AO stamps and ODBD dies from Our Daily Bread Designs).

If you have not had a chance to visit The Artistic Outpost Blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- great inspiration from my sister Design Team at the AO Blog as well as from the other challenge DT and galleries!

To create this card:

To create the background panel, ink the AO Bottle Caps Background image with archival black ink and stamp onto white cardstock.

Trim the background panel into three vertical strips (between the bottle caps) and use water based markers in red, emerald green and turquoise to color the bottle caps in the center panel.

Use a water brush with vintage photo distress ink to age the three panels and stamp the large splatter image from AO Grunge Elements with vintage photo distress ink over the three panels as well.

Use a heat tool to dry the ink and apply picket fence distress stain over the two outside panels to tone down the color, layered the center panel onto black cardstock, trim and mount onto white cardstock, trim and mount once more onto black cardstock.

Add the two outside bottle cap vertical panels onto white cardstock, mount the layered center panel per the sketch and adhere the entire panel onto the black card base.

Die cut a tag from white cardstock with the ODBD Tag Trio Dies and also cut the same size die from black cardstock.

Create the background for the tag by repeating the steps above for the outer bottle caps panels and mount the black die cut tag behind the background tag (splitting the black tag in half to frame the background tag).

Die cut three banners for the lower part of the tag with the ODBD Bitty Borders Dies- one from turquoise, one from black and one from bright green cardstock, layering each so a bit of the color will show behind the tag.

Ink the girl image from AO Ice Cream Shoppe with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, watercolor with water based markers, fussy-cut and mount onto black cardstock  (fussy-cut again before adding to the tag).

Mount the entire tag onto the card front with dimensional foam, die cut the bow from bright green cardstock using the ODBD Mini Bow Die, mount onto the top of the tag and add the turquoise button to the center.

Ink the sentiment from AO Ice Cream Shoppe with embossing ink, stamp onto black cardstock, heat emboss with white embossing powder, trim the sentiment by hand once the embossing has cooled and mount onto the tag.  

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the ice cream cone and colored bottle caps in the background to finish off the card.

I am so thankful that you visited me today and hope I have inspired you to create a project this week!  Hugs and have a great week, my friends!
