June’s elements

It’s the first Friday of another month so our challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week is an elemental one - choose at least three elements from Rizwana’s lovely summery mood board to inspire your project. 

I chose ice cream in a waffle cone, blue background inspired by the clear summer skies and script style sentiment. As my ice cream cone is a set dated 2016 I’m also playing at Retro Rubber where there’s an “anything goes” theme at the moment. 

I smooshed blue ink onto the card base with a piece of acetate, stamped a double cone and cut it out, then decided it really should be a triple and stamped the yellow blob and tucked that in behind. Then for good measure I did the green blob again, cut it out and used glue gel to stick it on so the whole shebang has some dimension. A few stamped dots extend the background out a bit. The layering stamps do a great job but I did add a tiny bit extra shading with a couple of Copics.

3 scoops! That is my kind of ice-cream cone! Love your card, really love the artsy, painty background, and that large sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT

This takes me back to when we were kids and went to a particular shop and got three scoops of sherbet-raspberry, orange and lemon. It was colorful and the trick was to eat it before it melted. We would also go on this merry go round in the park with them and scare all the moms. LOL. We never lost a scoop.

That lovely bold blue also speaks to me of water and a cone on the beach...

Terrific summer card.
