Fave Ice Cream

Well summer finally came, for the last three days anyway but all is changing again and guess what … rain is on the way … wahoooo … I DON’T THINK!!!!

The family have another week to go of their hols, at least they got to see some sunshine and spent three days at the beach.

It’s the start of another challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time round we would love to see all those


Avril chose this delicious challenge … can you guess what my fave ice cream is yum yum mmmmmm … Strawberry … just love it.

My card has been made using the Antique Frame from Spellbinders which I first embossed directly onto the card instead of cutting it out. While the frame was still on the card I blended over with TH Victorian Velvet Ink. Used the same ink to stamp the edge of card also stamped onto a plain piece of white cotton ribbon. Cut out the frame with same white cardstock then placed directly over the embossed card which gives a fabulous raised effect which you can’t really see. Stamped the lady over the VV DI ink then with a paintbrush dipped in water I coloured out some of the ink to leave lots of whiteish looking shaded areas.

You really must go and see all the beautiful creations which the FSC fashionettes have created this time round they all look good enough to eat.

    I love strawberry also! Shirley, you have managed to turn ice cream into an elegant treat! Love how you framed that lovely lady, so pretty! Really nice bow as well! Have a great fun with the remaining family time and I sure hope the rain will be brief! Actually, just send it here as we need some – badly!

    Hi Shirley…so all of this is done in one layer??? It looks amazing, the depth is just brilliant. I hope you are having an awesome time with everyone around! It wont be too bad to have a couple of days inside if you managed to get a little sunburnt?
