I've used ice cream colours for this card to get a real seaside feel: The framelits label in the colour of the summer sky (!) the sand-like textured So Saffron card stock, the pink of the ice cream... YUM!
I wanted to show you a close up of the ice cream - can you see the texture and dimension it has? This is all done very simply using markers - the ice cream part of the rubber stamp has been coloured with a Pink Pirouette marker and has been shaded directly on the rubber with Pretty in Pink; the cone was coloured with a So Saffron marker, again shaded directly on the rubber with More Mustard. This is such an effective technique and is yet another reason why I'm a huge fan of the markers.
I made these cards for some lovely ladies in my Stampers 6 club to wish them a happy summer!
