Summer Ice Cream

I had some time today to finally create a card with this cute stamp from Whimsy's Elisabeth Bell collection. The stamp is called "Summer Ice Cream" and it was one of the gorgeous new stamps just released last week. 



I know my coloring is not that great, but I am including the copics used anyway, in case anyone is wondering what I used. I really need to figure out a better color combo for blue shades, especially jeans.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11
Hair: E31, E33, E37
Hat and Pants: B0000, B41, B45, 0 -blender
Shirt: Y11, Y15, Y17
Grass:YG00, YG03, YG06, YG63, G21
Leaves: YG00, YG03, YG06
Flowers: R20, R22, R24
Fence: E31, E43, E57, E33
Cone: E31, Y21, R00, R22
Dog: W1, W3, W5, W7

Here is another view.


As you can see I added some glitter to all the flowers, and the dragonfly border die cut. The sentiment is part of the set "Everyday Honeycomb Greetings" from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs", and the Dragonfly border die was also just released by Whimsy. Love that die!  I layered the dragonfly die cut onto a black dragonfly die cut, because I just needed a little bit of black on the top part of the card.

I used one of my favorite simple sketches. The paper is from a 6x6 designer paper pack by My Mind's Eye.  

I would like to play along in a few challenges today:

This is lovely! If you are looking for more "jean" blues...I have B91, B93, B95, and B97 and they are great for denim. Eventually I want to add B99, but the others have been great for now. Yellows and Pinks have been a harder search for me...I don't know why I am so picky about those shades! lol

I've been a bad blogger this week Ellie and afraid I totally missed this, but so pleased I popped in as it's totally adorable.
