We All Scream for Ice Cream!

I know I do, LOL. I've been on an ice cream (stamping and IRL) and pink/pastels kick for awhile. I've had this older sketch challenge saved on my desktop for awhile and finally decided to give it a try today. Not as hard as it looks that's for sure. I used my new Ice Cream set by TAC again. My images are colored with SU markers. The dishes are covered in Stardust Stickles and the chocolate is covered with Crystal Effects. YUM! I used the 1 1/4" punch and then the second ring on the circle Coluzzle. It's been awhile since I pulled out the Cuttlebug so I put it to good use today. My pink background is embossed with the Textile folder, then I inked up a brayer with Pretty in Pink and rolled over the background to highlight the raised parts. My sentiment is stamped in Palette Burnt Umber on Apricot Appeal cardstock. I went over the letters with Apricot and Pumpkin markers before covering them with Crystal Effects. That's about it. Happy Stamping!!
