Treat yourself!


I really like this card. I don't always like my cards...but this is an ice creamy one. And I like ice cream!

The image is Banana Split from Stampendous. I simply adore that stamp!

It was stamped on watercolor paper using, yep...you guessed it.... Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored with Tombow markers. I put a little Diamond Glaze on the cherries and the fudge for gloss and dimension, and used Liquid Applique for the whipping cream.

The decorative paper is made by Paper Loft. I used a Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder to emboss the paper. I think it gives it the effect of swirly icing. And the background paper kind of reminds me of sprinkles. Or is it just me? LOL!

The sentiment is Stampendous Treat Yourself . I put jewel stickers in various sizes on each side of the stamped sentiment for added definition.

The layers were cut with Fiskars Scallop scissors. I doodled around th edges of the Banana Split layer just for fun. If you haven't tried doodling, you just must! It's so much fun...and very addictive. And you can't do it wrong since there are no rules.

Well....I'm still on my crazy schedule of getting up before daybreak, so I'm off to bed early. Thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic, the confetti paper goes so great with the banana split stamp and the embossed background puts it over the top.
