Ice Cream colours at PanPastel UK

Good morning, we're having some really horrendous weather here at the minute but hopefully this card will be a little reminder of summer. Our theme this week at PanPastel UK is 'Icecream colours' . I've gone for neapolitan with pink, yellow and brown yum scrum :-)

I've used stamps from 'Carousel horses' by Chocolate Baroque for this card. I blended hansa yellow tint, red tint and white panpastel on some white card and then stamped the icecream cone stamp and coloured with PanPastels using one of the dinky little Sofft Mini Applicators which are brilliant for detailed areas. I created the little scene by stamping the carousel horse and the helterskelter and then adding a PanPastel cloudy sky. I stamped the bunting  and then used a pencil eraser to remove the panpastel where I wanted to colour the images. I coloured the images with PanPastels adding some detail with distress markers. The image is decoupaged and has some gold embossing on the top layer. I've added ribbon and lace from my stash and lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. You can see the detail a bit better here:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
