Inkspiration Card Challenge

.Today I' d like to share my cards I created for the Inkspiration card challenge . It was fun creating a design which showcased all the colours and once I started I found it hard to stop ! The ideas just kept flowing and I was loving playing with one of my new sets - the Cool Treats Bundle. When I first saw these colours they spoke ice creams to me ! Well done ladies  - great colours for this challenge ! When I began to create I did not have my Cool Treats so I started with the Between The Lines DSP which is available free with a $90 ( before postage ) order during SAB.
Here is my  first card . I very patiently coloured in the flowers using all of the six colours given to us for the challenge. I love to colour it is so relaxing ! I used my ink pads and a blender pen and then gave my project a bit of glimmer using my Wink Of Stella pen . I used three colours for the greeting and  four  different coloured ribbons . I decided to mount my card onto two matts and then onto my card base.

Yay ! My Cool Treats bundle arrived ! I wanted my ice cream sundae to be a swirl of the chosen colours and white and couldn't think how was going to achieve this look . Then I remembered the shaving cream technique ! Perfect ! I created my ice cream sundae and was thrilled with the result . The ice creams also received a lick of Stella ! I created the wafer biscuit using the striped stamp from this set then  cut it out with the candle die from the Cutie Pie set . Another technique I haven't  used in a while , the baby wipe technique , was used to stamp the letters .

I am so pleased with the effect of the ice creams on  Basic Black card stock ! I added a greeting by  heat embossing the sentiment in white . Then I layered it onto Tempting Turquoise and So Saffron DSP and finally onto a layer of Sweet Sugar Plum wash tape .

 Finally , I decided to pull out my Confetti TEF for this one - I don't use it enough and was delighted with the result of sponging all six colours onto it ! This time I white heat embossed onto Peekaboo Peach . Don't forget to go to the Inkspiration page on Facebook and play along or drop by and like my cards ! Happy Stamping 😊😀😀
