For The Fashionable Stamping Challenge this time we're in a summery mood and would like to see colours of ice cream ! Now, since I saw this challenge title I've been dreaming about a large bowl of vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries ! I've not managed it yet, but I shall have to soon !
With the thought of vanilla ice cream in mind I used the opportunity to make a card for an order. The request was to have a canal theme and as it was for a Golden Wedding anniversary I kept to the vanilla ice cream colours. The stamps I've used for the canal boat and the watering can are ones I've had for years. I don't know who made them.....sorry ! I've used a Stamp Tapestry set on the watering can to add the flowers. The canal boat has been painted using Distress Markers, then both images have been cut out using Nestabilities. The ticket is from the Tim Holtz Odds and Ends stamp set. I find this stamp really useful for adding dates to projects. The background is made using Elusive Images stamps, stamped with Archival Sepia ink. The music, again is a stamp I've had for years and I don't know who it's by ! I did some acrylic paint resist on the remaining panel, not that you can see much of it !
The flower is made from Crinoline that I've tipped with Distress Ink, Scattered Straw. The gorgeous crocheted lace is from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, who has just taken delivery of CHA recent releases so make sure you check it out ! The sentiment was done on my PC and cut out using Nestabilites.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.
