Spectrum Noir July Challenge - Summer

Hi everybody...have you seen the challenge over on the Spectrum Noir Facebook page??

This month's theme is "Summer" now easy is that??  All you have to do is use some of the Spectrum Noir products.

The stamps I have used for this card are from Hero Arts...they are quite cool!!

I coloured the Spectrum Aqua markers directly onto the stamp this time, just really to see the difference, so I think it has made the colours a bit more bolder than if I lifted the colour from a stamping mat.

I stamped the cones first using topaz then I left it to dry a bit and stamped the texture over the cone using marigold.  I then stamped the ice cream using lime, peach and blossom and then stamped the swirls in olive, blossom and scarlet.  Next I added some sprinkles stamped in chocolate....oh almost forgot the cherry on top....that was stamped using olive and blossom.

Next I also stamped the's supposed to resemble different coloured sprinkles, then I layered the ice creams onto the card.

You can also pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog to find out loads of tips and techniques on using all your Spectrum Noir products.

Love this yummy card Fi!
Those cones look delish!
How have you been keeping? Good here but I wish the pace would slow just a bit. Looking forward to retirement though.
