#CTMH June SOTM - Ice Cream Dream


The Confetti Wishes papers work so well with this stamp set and I had fun with colouring in with my ShinHan Touch Twin markers.  The pattern is from the Make it From Your Heart Volume 2 book pattern 14.  I coloured all the images on separate cardstock and then fussy cut them all out and placed them on on the layout.  The sentiment is also great for colouring in as well and the colours of the markers went so well with the colours of the papers.

I apologise for the quality of card photos – I had a flat battery on my camera and had to use my phone and I couldn’t get too close without a shadow.

I used my Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the scalloped circles to highlight the sundae and dog.  The sentiment on the top card has been cut out of the Confetti Wishes paper which was a very quick and easy way to put the sentiment on a card.  Once again I have used the fabulous pattern 28 from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.

Can you see that I have used the end of the dove tailed banner on the layout and it just finished the next card off.  I don’t like throwing anything away that I could possibly use again.  I love the Blossom paper and the blue patterned paper is so versatile to go with a lot of other papers in the catalogue and here I have cut the celebrate wording and candles and placed it over the blue paper and it gave a nice soft background for the bright vibrant colours of the rest of the card.  I have coloured the silver sequins with the Peony Purple ShinHan Touch Twin marker to coordinate the colours to match.
