Ohh lookie here, a progressive challenge finished before the final few days! This month the image for the From the Heart Challenge is great for the long hot summer we are hoping for!
From the Heart Stamps – Ice Cream Lineup (free if you participated in last month’s challenge)
Imagine That! digis by Kris – Ice Cream Parlour Digi Papers
acrylic ice cream cone stamp (magazine freebie)
white printer card
X-Press It card
snippet of frosted shrink plastic
archival ink pad
white A5 card blank
The image and sentiment are printed out together then a second copy of just the ice creams is fussy cut and stuck over the top with gel glue.
The ice cream cones are stamped onto a snippet of shrink plastic, coloured with pencils, cut out and shrunk.
The backing paper is printed from the Ice Cream Parlour set and used to cover the front of the card blank. A black pen has bee run around the edges and also around the edges of the main image.
We have been enjoying a few days of lovely sunny weather here and I have manage a couple of walks around our local reservoir/nature reserve. The coots, swans and ducks are now showing off their youngsters and a few days ago I was luck enough to spot a kingfisher flashing by. There is no mistaking the bright blue streak as it skims over the water.
I hope that if you are in the same hemispere you are also enjoying good weather. If you are heading into winter I hope it is not too harsh.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
