We all screamed for ice cream ...

Great challenge on the Wicked Wednesday atc challenge blog, sponsored by Sami Stamps. Title is Something Sweet. Here is my dt creation. I am also entering this into the Sami Stamps challenge, link here :  Sami Stamps
The ice cream is meant to be dripping and creating a bit of a sea... did you get that ? LOL I used acetate as my atc base, so behind the Sami Stamps image is clear. Hopefully it added to my ice cream sea a little more :)

The pink and blue background is something I found in my stash. It came as a gift from someone in the Stampotique atc trade I facilitate, there were a few different atc sized backgrounds actually, but this one inspired my ice cream creation :) I think it looks like bubble gum flavour - what do you think ?

The Sami Stamps image was resized in MS word, printed, colored with copics and fussy cut.

I paper pieced the ice cream in the cone by printing the image onto cheap printer paper, adhering (using temporary tape) the patterned paper over the area I wanted to be printed, in this case the ice cream. Then ran through my printer again. The ice cream prints in the same place, but this time onto my patterned paper :)

 I then cut if out and glued it over the top of my copics colored image.

It was a fun image to work with, here is a pic of the whole Sami Stamps image I used and the end result :)

Thanks for visiting, Nikki x
