Ice Cream Anyone? (SSS102)

Greetings friends - IT'S FRIDAY, go ahead, let me hear it WOOP, WOOP!!!  Or do you like the W@@T, W@@T better?  LOL

I'm happy the weekend is here!  But let's move right along; this week I soooo wanted to use the sketch from The Sweet Stop; great, great layut, thanks Korin!

I pulled together some new MME paper that reminded me of summer and wonderful ice cream - YUM!  My BFF LOVES chocolate mint, so the top scoop is for her.  The bottom scoop?  Well, it could be bubble gum, or something with cherries - I'm not sure.  But no, it's not my favorite flavor - mine is chocolate from Baskin Robbins; I'm pretty sure it's a scoop of heaven here on earth!  :D

This image from Kim Hughes' Little Gal stamp set is actually just an ice cream cone with one scoop; but I really needed two...you know, sometimes ice cream is JUST THAT GOOD!!  This stamp set was offered by CHF who is no longer in business, and I haven't been able to locate a picture of the actual ice cream cone for ya, so just use your imagination here!  :D

I stamped the image once masking off the cherry on top; then I stamped it again, this time only inking up the rounded portion of the ice cream and the cherry and stamped it on top of my first image.  Since these are rubber cling stamps; you can't see exactly where you are stamping, but it worked out great.  I used a Close to Cocoa SU! marker to finish in the bottom layer of ice cream (where the cherry would have been) and to connect the two scoops.  Voila, yummy 2 scoops of ice cream!

I colored the image with Copics; then stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set onto 2 different patterned papers and adhered them together just in the middle so the wings of the butterfly could move!  Added 3 chocolate pearls, edged everything in VersaMagic Jumbo Java and that's it!

Thanks for peeking in; hope you have a great weekend!
