Ice cream

This is for the sketch for Pink elephant 99:
This is also for the 'ice cream' challenge for One stop craft 131. I chose to use a stamped image featuring ice cream, but also ice cream colours for chocolate and strawberry. The image is Penny Black hot but cool. I had a couple of these in a rubber stamp swap quite a long while ago. I wasn't sure what ink had been used to stamp them, so I tried copics/promarkers on the first one and it was a disaster, so for this I got out my old colouring pencils - that made a change! The brown paper is from Dena designs. The pink card was embossed with a Crafts-too dots embossing folder. A pink foiled sentiment and a few flowers finished off the card.

I chose the Penny Black image for Penny Black Saturday challenge 141: clean & simple.

This is also for:

Irish teddy's: embossed
Freshly brewed 45: beach or summer
PaperPlay 19: celebrating summer
Mami doodles 26: spots and/or stripes
Make it colourful 18: dotty backgrounds
Prairie fairy Fridays 52: here come the girls
Crafty Ann 40: happy birthday
Crafty creations 118: anything goes
Penny's 53: anything goes
Scrappy frogs: anything goes
Sew many challenges 53: anything goes
Stamp something: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 6: anything goes
