decided to create invites this time around which I thought would be
perfect for a birthday party. I began by die cutting three Recipe Cards
from white card using Eileen Hull's die. The background has been
coloured with Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks. I
applied each colour to a piece of recycled plastic packaging, spritzed
with water and then dabbed the ink onto the background and then dried
with a heat tool. Repeated the same process with the second colour and
dried once again. I repeated this until I was happy with the coverage of
I added a touch of background stamping using the Ephemera Backgrounds stamp and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
printed off computer generated text which I die cut using one of Tim
Holtz Thinlits Labels adding a touch of colour with Picked Raspberry
Distress Ink. I also used part of the sentiment to add Ice Cream three
times to each of the invites.
stamped the ice cream cone with Black Archival Ink onto each of the
invites. I also thought that these would make great recipe cards. You
could add a homemade ice cream recipe to the back.
added interest I included painted circles and scratchy lines using
Picked Raspberry Distress Paint. I added Black Soot Distress Ink to the
edges for definition.
