You're Sweet!

Hi everyone.  Today is a reminder for the CAS Watercolour June Challenge - Summer.  What would summer be without ice cream??!! :)

I pressed both Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade onto my craft mat and spritzed with a little water.  Then I used a #8 round paint brush to pick up the colours one at a time and slosh some on to my card front (mixed media paper).

I then die-cut the ice cream and waffle cone from more mixed media paper and sloshed more paint to to them.  I layered the ice cream cone with foam and then popped up just the ice cream (top) for even more dimension.

A simple sentiment finishes the card.

I hope you'll come join us at CAS Watercolour June Challenge - Summer if you haven't already.  Check out the challenge to see the reminder cards from our Design Team and wonderful Guest Designers, LeAnne and Ksenija.  I know you'll be inspired!

There's still just over a week left to play before the challenge closes at midnight (PST) June 24th.  Hope to see you there!

  5. What could be more perfect for the Summer theme than an ice cream cone! Beautifully painted - it looks like it could be strawberry (one of my favourite flavours) or raspberry ripple! Love the dimension you achieved with the cone and the scoop of ice cream.

  17. Yummo, Lolly, this looks icy cold and super delicious!! I love that the background looks like the remnants of a cone that a little one accidentally dumps out. So, of course, they get a new one to stop the tears! Love it!! Hugs, Dolly
