The Dueling Darlings are kicking off the 2022 Dueling Season with a fun challenge. January 15th is National Strawberry Ice Cream Day. Who knew??!! Certainly not me! However, our hostess for this month is Jeanette and she knew!
My kit from Jeanette is taking the world wide tour before showing up in my mailbox...so I improvised.
Since I don't have any ice cream stamps, I used the edge of a cloud die to trace around, then drew a semi-circle above it for the scoop of ice cream. Then I sponged on 2 pinks, intentionally leaving darker splotches to resemble strawberry pieces. The sparkle comes from a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen.
My ruler and a sharpie worked well to hand draw the cone. I scored it with my bone folder and sponged on a bit of light brown ink.
The strawberry paper on the background panel is from the "Pretty Party" pad by Crate Paper.
The cherry and Happy Birthday are stamps in the "Hey Cupcake" set by A Muse Studio. I tried using the frosting stamp, thinking it would look like soft serve ice cream...but I wasn't pleased with my end result, hahaha.
Well, Jeanette, I hope you're happy with my take on your duel for this month. You picked a really cute theme. I'm sure that whenever my kit shows up, I'll be inspired to make another card!
