I was inspired right away by the colors- they reminded me of sherbet ice cream- raspberry and orange flavors. So I decided to use the Paper Smooches stamp set Sugar Rush and for colors I used Memento Dye ink- Rose Bud and Tangelo. After stamping the ice cream cone- I cutie out and used texture paste (colored with the inks) to make the actual ice cream scoops.
Such great texture- looks good enough to eat! And of course I had to add sprinkles!
The background was stamped in the same ink colors-alernating two sentiments from the stamp set. I then layered this panel onto a panel covered with gold embossing ink- to bring in the gold from the photo. The final white background was dry embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder- I picked this one because it mimicked the pattern of the candle holder.
Picture perfect challenges are always fun and challenging!! You can play along too- details are
