Hello and Happy Saturday!!! I hope you all had a great start to your weekend. I just finished working my first week of summer school. I am with a preschool/kindergarten class this summer and you forget how cute (but tiring) they are after working with the older kids all year. I am glad to have 2 days to sleep in a bit later.
I am posting this card today as a guest DT for My Sheri Crafts. They have a fantastic challenge starting today and as you can see it is all about ice cream in a cone or dish! I colored a few images and really liked these cute Meljens Design images. I love ice cream in the summer and always feel like it is calling out to me to have some so the faces on both these seemed fitting. I wanted some of the image to look realistic so I put Crystal Effects on the 3 toppings and the cherry on top. I didn't like the spoon flat and it didn't look right popped-up so I took a tool I have with a good size ball on the end and "rolled" the center of the spoon so the edges would pop up and give a curve to the spoon head. I also did the back of the handle to have the center of the handle pop-out. I also used a real doily because the ice cream shop usually serves their ice cream on them. I just dressed it up a bit with jewel mini hearts and mini pearls. All the ladies did such a fabulous job so be sure to stop by and be inspired to play along!
