If you're here for Word Play Weekend please scroll down one post!
Hello and happy tuesday!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and a good start of the week! My weekend was much much better than last weekend, and our kitty Thomas is recovering from his surgery (partial tail amputation). He is getting his stitches out today and he already seems to be back to his mischievous self.
Today's card is for Digital Tuesday Challenge. Lora is our hostess and she wants to see our
favorite ice cream combo colors.
What a great idea for a challenge!! Of course my number 1. ice cream flavor is just plain chocolate! But I also love vanilla bean with hot raspberries as topping, so those are my colors. Then there is a bit green in my card for pistachio ice cream, another one of my favorites, which I remember being green in Germany but the one I found here in America wasn't green.
The card is an easel card and I added a tag to the inside.
I made this card for my daughter's upcoming birthday. The image is from Whimsy Stamps, Crissy Armstrong's Dance of Love. My daughter loves carousels, and I know she loves this image because I let her choose the image she wanted on her card, and from the many many digis I have this is what she wanted!
But she won't see the card until her birthday. I know she is going to love it, because she always wants me to use these roses on the cards I make but I never do because they don't seem practical when mailing so I usually stay away from using them. But since this card won't be mailed I decided to use them.
Here is a close up of the image.
It has been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and used baby oil for blending. I applied some glitter to the mane and tail and also on the flowers. I have also added some lace and did some sewing. And then I placed some pearls to the top right corner.
The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamp, from the rubber stamp set "mini party letter seals" found here.
I'd love to combine this card with the following challenges:
Hope to see you there!!
