The Card Concept Challenge 59 -SweetTreats

This week at The Card Concept the theme is 'Sweet Treats'. Such gorgeous colours to play with. My fellow design team members have created a diverse range of colourful cards to inspire you so do click on the link to take a look :)

For my card, I swiped a blueish dye ink pad lightly across the white, linen texture background.
I found the texture on the cone very inspiring and I love how the cone acts as a base for the explosion of colourful ice cream. I tried to recreate that using the tag as a base.
The Scribble Flowers are 'blobby' like the scoops of ice cream. I stamped the colour several times using Distress Inks then black stamped the Scribbles. I repeat stamped the Scribbles using Versamark and white embossed. I did dry off the black Versafine ink before using the Versamark and white powder, but obviously not enough, hence the speckled black lines. Using the powder tool between would have prevented that.
