Challenge

Oh my, I’m so sorry not to be blogging more at the moment. So many things to do before the summer to get all my ducks in a row! Eek, I love this time of year and each year I vow to be more organised next year ….. I say the same at Christmas too ….. never happens though LOL. Ah well, the thought of time with the kids, hopefully some sunshine, chilling out, ice cream, a good book – it will all be worth it :D

Talking of ice cream :D I couldn’t resist pulling out the new Super Cool set for this month’s Clearly Besotted Challenge, which has a fabulously easy theme – anything goes! The bowl of ice cream is white heat embossed on watercolour card and then water coloured with diluted Distress Inks. To create a suitably water coloured cherry, the image was inked in Distress Inks and then misted with water before stamping. Both images were die cut with their matching dies and then mounted with foam adhesive on a panel of watercolour card on which I’d lightly applied ink through the Large Moroccan stencil from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is inked in Slate and Lipstick Red so everything matched :)

The panel is mounted on Icy Mint card and then a sprinkling of sequins and jewels added. Although you can’t see it, the ice cream has a coating of Zig Wink of Stella too :)

I do have a couple of posts scheduled in the next day or so including a video! It was pointed out to me the other day that I haven’t posted a video here since last year :o I aim to change that soon; maybe once I’ve read that book and indulged in a little ice cream :D In the meantime, call by the Clearly Besotted blog to see all the challenge details and more inspiration from Stephanie and The Team :)
