I Scream...You Scream..We All Scream for...


Hi Stampers!

Today's first post is my challenge card that I made for the Kenny K Challenge this week! The challenge was to make a card with your favorite ICE CREAM COLORS! How yummy is this? This card has taken me TWO DAYS...yes...TWO DAYS to finish - LOL! I colored my image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. I am still a newbie at coloring with markers so I kinda impressed myself with how my little Troublemaker turned out! LOL!

Here is my card:

My favorite ice cream of Bordeaux Chocolate Cherry Inspired my card! It is kind of hard to see but my black background paper has black embossed raised cherries. This is a retired Stampin Up! design. The reason this card took me TWO DAYS to finish is because of my other background paper I used! It is called Bees Knees and it is a retired Graphic 45 pattern that was my FAVORITE FAVORITE paper and this was my LAST I didn't want to use it... I wanted to HOARD it - LOL! So I searched and searched and searched online  and I found some that a store had left in stock... 12 sheets! So I snagged them all up...and then I could use my paper - LOL :) So if you spot some...let me know... I will buy it - LOL!

I used this month's I heart 2 stamp sketch for my layout -

My ice cream cone being the tall vertical panel :) When I saw Holly use this sketch the other day I fell in love with it and wanted to try it out myself. That is the hardest part of card-making for me - the lay outs so I love when awesome sketches come along - LOL!

Here are some close-up pics of my Troublemaker and ice cream cone and then just my image so you can take a better peak at my coloring:

I don't think I will be able to give this card away...I like it too much - LOL! I think I will put it in my SMASH book journal...when I start one :)

The images I used on this card are - Troublemaker from the KennyK Collection - Whimsy Stamps, My background for the girl is the Street Art Background from the Raindrop Echo Collection - Whimsy Stamps, and my "Sweet Friend" Sentiment is from the Flourishes Stamp Set - Apple of My Eye.

Thanks so much for stopping by and talking a peek! I plan on working on preorders in the store and making at least one more challenge card for today...hopefully two because I have them all planned just have to get the time to bust them out :) If I do I will post them later on today!
