Ice Cream Happiness

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, with the new March release stamp sets, Ice Cream Shoppe along with Bottle Caps Background.


I stamped the images from both sets onto white cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and die cut the Bottle Caps Background image using the ODBD Double Stitched Circle Dies and the Ice Cream Shoppe sentiment with the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I fussy cut the Ice Cream Shoppe girl image and the two ice cream cones, sponging red ink onto the images for a bit more distressing.

I applied Tim Holtz® Crazing Distress Medium over the Bottle Caps Background die cut along with the ice cream cones (it is a bit difficult to see the crazing in the photo).

The background panel was created by applying Tim Holtz® Picket Fence Distress Stain over the piece of designer paper from the ODBD Heart and Soul Paper Collection and once dried, Brilliant Red Brusho® watercolor was added. 

The stamped Bottle Caps Background and Ice Cream Shoppe images were added to the background with dimensional foam to finish off this fun card.

Don’t forget, we would love to see what you are creating with your Artistic Outpost stamps- click here for details on how to join in on our April Show Us Your AO Art Challenge.

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a wonderful week!!

Hi Julie, I love your fun vintage images and hope to come back to this blog often. Thanks for drawing my attention to it. What a great idea to keep the colour palette simple to focus more attention on the images themselves.
