Icecream colours at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there and a big warm welcome to my new followers, its lovely to  meet you. I don't seem to have had a minute to blog all week as work is sooooo busy at the minute, I'm  a happy bunny to have the weekend to catch up and have a crafting fix. But before I sneak off to my craft room, here's my DT card for Fashionable Stamping Challenges where we're modelling Ice cream Colours this time, chosen by my lovely teamie Avril. As always our lucky winner will receive a fabby voucher for Cottage Crafts courtesy of our generous sponsor Marina.

I've had a job getting a pic of this card, for some reason my camera doesn't like 'Neopolitan ' icecream lol. I've created a background with panpastels using white, magenta, diarylide yellow tint and burnt sienna, adding some texture with Crafters Workshop harlequin template and polyfiller. Next comes a layer of kraft glassine misted with glimmer mists and perfect pearls. The focal image is a gorgeous stamp from Crafty Individuals, I've decoupaged the image using gold embossing for the corners, glossy accents on the hearts and sepia accents on the little beads at the bottom. The image is coloured with distress markers and derwent inktense pencils. You can see the image a bit better in this pic:

I've also added some seam binding ribbon coloured with panpastels, lace, a sparkly pink brad, a rose made with tattered florals and tattered pinecone dies, some netting, a little butterfly charm and some die cut butterflies (from the lovely Linda at the Funkie Junkie boutique). To finish off I've added some little faux pearls made with cosmic shimmer glue

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by, before I go I thought I'd share this pic of our gorgoeus little puppy Barney after a hard day in the garden playing with his big brother Benji lol. He had such a fun time chasing around but came and crashed out lol

Have a lovely Sunday
