Sweet Summer

A sweet summery card with chocolate and pistachio icecream - my favourites!  And a yummy cherry to save for last. Yum.  It was inspired by the sketch.

The sun is cut from a snippet of smooshed card.  I used a Spellbinders die to draw the sentiment circle, which I wanted to blend in and look transparent.  I dotted Copics around the icecream to 'ground' it.

How fabulous, makes me want to have an ice-cream right now! A perfect card design for this challenge. Your ice-cream is coloured so beautifully and your a whizz with a white gel pen (I'm so jealous....). And love how you did the sentiment too. So glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!
