DeNami Design Color Challenge #1

Hello there! Here's a card I created for the first ever DeNami Design Color Challenge! Click HERE to read all of the details and find out how you can join in on the FUN!!! 

The challenge was to use the colors: magenta, lime, white, brown kraft, and chocolate brown. I absolutely LOVE this ice cream cone image and sentiment from DeNami Design and thought they were a perfect fit for this color combo! Aren't they SWEET?

Now, I have to tell you I struggled with the lighting a bit when photographing this. In the photos, the lime glitter on the ice cream and the lime-colored rhinestones look more yellow than lime. (I promise you, in person they are LIME just like the scalloped piece of cardstock on the left-hand side of the card.)

First, I stamped the image and then colored it with Copic and TUL markers. I colored the white scoops of ice cream with a Clear Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to give them some sparkle. Then, I applied pink and green Sugar Coating Glitter (Doodlebug Design) to the other scoops. I covered the cherry on top with a Rain Dot (Cloud 9 Design), which makes it look plump and practically edible (YUM!).

The magenta trim to the left of the ice cream cone is vinyl, so it's shiny and adds a bit of interesting texture to the layout.

Here's a close-up of the ice cream cone:

I didn't have any colored rhinestones on hand, so I used a tip I learned from the March/April 2010 issue of Paper Crafts Magazine. I used lime and magenta markers to color my clear rhinestones. And, it worked!!! YAY! Here's a close-up of that:

I know, I know...they look yellow, but I promise, they are LIME! Gosh, I wish I had my own personal professional photographer.

I even tried to take a photo outside:

Let me know what you think! I love receiving your comments!!!

I'm heading to the kitchen to make some vegetable stir fry for dinner!! And, I just might have to have some ice cream for dessert!!
