Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 135 - Sunshine

Hello Everyone

I hope you have all had a wonderful Jubilee week even though the weather has been just pants!  Typical, I've had a week off work and the only two days we haven't had any rain was spent clearing out and re-planting part of the garden and now that that's done the weather has become just horrible!  I just know when I go back to work on Monday it will be lovely :oS

Anyways moan over - it's time for the weekly challenge over at Totally Gorjuss where this week the theme is 'Sunshine' and our lovely sponsor is Crafter's Companion.  As always make sure you go and see what the lovely DT ladies have made for you.

Here is the card I have made:

Now, when I think about lovely hot sunshine one of my first thoughts is ice cream - I mean who wouldn't ;o)  so this is where my inspiration came from - mmmm strawberry and chocolate ice cream - my favourite.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Make It Crafty Frenchie Claudine
Papers:  My Minds Eye Stella Rose Hazel
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy Circle Postmark Sentiments
Ribbon:  From My Stash

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hair:  E34 E55 E53 E51 E50
Hat, Top, Skirt:  R39 R29 R27 R24 R22 / C2 C1 C0 C00
Ice Cream Strawberry:  R39 R29 R27 R24 R22 G29 G46
Cream:  C2 C1 C0 C00
Chocolate Ice Cream:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Strawberry Ice Cream:  R85 R83 R81
Cornet:  E27 E25 E23 E21
Wafers:  E31 E30 E0000

I have also used Cold Grey V Polychromo Pencil for shading
I have used Walnut Stain Distress Ink around all the edges of the papers and image

One final picture of the inside of the card:

And for those of you who are eagle-eyed you will see that I managed to stick this into my card upside-down ;oS heh heh heh.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you all have a great weekend.
