Ice Cream Sunday!

Sunday, 8 August 2010

It's Sunday evening and that means the weekend is away again! I don't understand why the weekend goes by so quickly, although the weeks go by so quickly too so I suppose the weekend has to as well!

Anyway, I made a card today (well, it was really yesterday!).
I used one of Kenny K's gorgeous digi's - I bought 4 of them a few weeks ago and have coloured a couple of them - this one is Troublemaker. I've since seen his fabulous new ones and I want them all!

Here's my card...


The design paper is from the DCWV Rockstar stack and I embossed the background in my cuttlebug.
I wanted to use some pom-poms on the card to match the ice cream, and I knew I had a basket full of them somewhere, but after searching for ages I discovered that I had none in the right colour. So I used some ribbon and sewed around the edges and pulled the thread tight which sort of made wee scoops of ice cream! I still think pom-poms would've looked better.


I used a Marianne Design swirl on the corners.
I coloured the image with my copics


Skin: E41, E00, E21, R02
Hoodie: R20, RV21, RV11
Jeans: c6, C8, C10
Trainers & Ice Cream: W1, W3, W5, RV34, RV09
Hair: C7, C9, 110
Eyes: YG13
Shading: C2

This is the inside - plain and simple but the embossed paper ties it with the front of the card.


I followed the sketch on The Sweet Stop.

I've been having major diffs getting pictures onto my post. It wouldn't let me resize my images the way I normally do and they were too big, so I had to upload them differently and the quality is terrible! I'm hoping it's just a wee blip and will sort itself out - otherwise I have some homework to do!

ETA, I tried my usual way of adding my pics this morning at work and it worked! Maybe windows 7 doesn't like the way I do things!

I hope you like the card, thanks for dropping by!

That embossed background is great for this card. She looks so innocent - why the Troblemaker name??? lol. I really enjoyed this week's challenge with KK and it looks like you did too.

Sheena, what a gorgeous card. I love the texture of the embossing as it gives the card such a lift. Troublemaker eh - well maybe if that ice-cream was dripping all over my carpet!!! best wishes, Kym xxx
