Your can't buy happiness but you can buy ice cream!
Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost. Today I am showcasing the newly released Ice Cream Shoppe stamp set.
decided to do something a little different this week. I thought the
imagery from this stamp set was perfect for a sweet treat container.
Eileen Hull's Canister die was perfect for this.
coloured the background of the Canister die with Picked Raspberry and
Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks, applying one colour at a time. I
applied the Distress Inks to a piece of plastic packaging, spritzed with
water and then pressed the packaging onto the die cut and then dried
with a heat tool. I continued with this process until I was happy with
the coverage of colour.
I stamped the Ice Cream Cone onto each side of the Canister using Potting Soil Archival Ink.
placed the Tim Holtz Chevron stencil onto the background and applied
Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over the stencil to add a further layer of
used part of the sentiment from the stamp set to add the 'ice cream'
text to each side of the canister, stamped with Pink Peony Archival Ink.
applied Squeezed Lemondade Distress Paint to old lids and stamped onto
the background and also added delicate splatters of paint for a further
layer of interest.
added a couple of ice cream embellishments to the top of the canister
and decorated using all the same layers as with the outside edges.
