Just Add Ink #344 - Inspiration Challenge



Today's card is for the latest Just Add Ink Challenge #344, an inspirational challenge.




I really had no idea what to do for this challenge! I really have no summer-type stamp sets so I tried to come up with an ice cream tub using Sweet Cupcakes and the matching framelits. Colour was the tricky thing and I would die for a Very Vanilla ink pad! So I cut out the top of the cupcake in Whisper White and with my Early Espresso marker I coloured on some chocolate sauce and used a Versamarker to emboss it with clear embossing powder to give it that shiny look. I also cut out a spoon from the retired Cups & Kettles framelits and stuck that in the ice cream. Made me really crave a nice cold ice cream, especially with the really hot weather we are having!

For the background I used some of the retired Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP and coloured it with a mix of Tempting Turquoise ink, Craft White pigment ink and a little bit of water to help spread it out. I wanted to try to keep the colour lighter so the background didn't dominate.
