You Make Life Sweet

Hello, I am so happy you’ve stopped by today!

I don’t know about you, but I love ice cream, and today’s card features the delicious Sugar Rush stamp set from Paper Smooches!  My card was partially inspired by this creation by the fabulous Kay Miller… be sure to stop by her blog to check it out!

 

You Make Life Sweet_2

 

To create my background, I did some ink smooshing using Spun Sugar distress ink, for a soft pink watercolored backdrop to my ice cream. I also mixed some Spun Sugar ink with some translucent texture paste and applied it onto my card base using the Tiny Hearts stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

My images are stamped in Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. Some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents add some sparkle and shine to the ice cream and cherries. I then attached the fussy cut images onto my watercolor panel, along with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to create a “sprinkle” effect.

 

You Make Life Sweet_1

 

I love how the card turned out, and I’d love to hear what you think too! Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to leave some love over on Kay’s blog as well! :)

    This turned out so cute! I simultaneously felt inspired by your skills and hungry for some ice cream! Love the smooshed background and how you made the ice cream have those great pops of brighter color. I also thought it was brilliant of you to add some bits of sparkle and bling! I truly enjoyed this post and really loved seeing this project. You have a great eye for art and the skills to back it up! Thanks for sharing this with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
