FSC - Summer Ice Cream Colours

Strawberry, Vanilla and Caramel

I have a little set for you on the cat walk today in my summer ice-cream colours - two cards and a note book.




The note book was made by stamping onto tissue paper which I then used to cover some chipboard pieces covered with distress stains. I added a few bits and and bobs and used the Bind-It-All to complete it.

The cards were made in a similar way, this time covering a piece of card with the stamped tissue paper, then blending DI round the edges. The bunting I made using DS and DI on canvas, the button card I downloaded and re-sized sewing a button onto it. Some shabby ribbon, tape measure, lace, gem brad and PC generated sentiment finish it off.

Hope you can come and join the Stampettes at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this week, do take a look at their amazing pieces for inspiration.

Materials used -
Stamps - Haberdashery by Tim Holtz
Distress inks - Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain

Hi Brenda. Yummy, I love those flavours and the colour combo looks terrific in this set. I love the button on a button tag too, a nice touch!

Hello Brenda, they both look so lovely. I do like the tissue paper technique, it creates a subtle delicate texture, I have never stamped onto the stuff myself; it looks wonderful.
Adding the canvas bunting has a different feel again but juxtaposes so well with all your elements.
Great work.
