Ice Cream

Hi, thanks for your visit. Today at Alphabet Challenges 
Silvi has chosen for the letter I - Ice Cream. 
Oh! now who doesn't like Ice Cream?
The Design Team have enjoyed playing with this one,
perfect for the wonderful summer weather, we in the UK are
experiencing at present. 
For my card, the papers and the ice cream are free downloads
from the internet. I kinda fussy cut and moved the 
ice cream around a little to fit the cones. 
Coloured with Promarkers.
Of course there is glitter sprinkled here and there. 
Glossy accents on the red sauce - when I was a child, this
was called Monkey's blood, so not PC nowadays or is it? 
Have fun, I'm off to have a bowl of ice cream.

challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz 
Dawn has chosen an interesting challenge
Men's Fashion
Please don't miss out on seeing the DT ideas on the blog.
For my A5 card I have dabbled in mixed media with

 Vintage Photo DI.  A white piece of card was coloured with 
several Distress Inks, splattered with Cosmic Shimmer red spray.
 The background stamps are from a Creative Expressions set - Flight - 
the men in black are from Tim Holtz , the other gentleman
 is from Kanban - Jasper set. 
Have fun - looking forward to seeing your entries.
