Friends Are Like Ice Cream

Don't miss my post for Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko today! Scroll down below this blog hop post to see it!


I'm blog hopping today with the fabulous ladies at Designed to Color, and Lil' Inker Designs goodies!  Designed to Color is celebrating a birthday this week, so everyone's made birthday cards to share.  I opted for this darling Arctic Friends stamp, from the 2 Cute Ink line of stamps at Lil' Inker Designs.  Fun fact: when 2 Cute first launched as a digi company, I was on their DT!  It's so cool to see the stamps for sale through Lil' Inker Designs now!

Anyway....I figured since birthday parties usually have ice cream, this card made for a sweet little bit of birthday fun.  I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with my Spectrum Noir pens.  Here's a closer look at the colors I used:

Penguin: IG4, IG6, IG8 (beak: OR2)
Polar Bear: BG1, Blender pen (scarf: GT1, GT2)
Ice Cream (from bottom up): EB2, EB1 (cones), 
TN1, TN2 (chocolate scoop);  PP1, PP3 (strawberry scoop); 
GT1, GT2 (pistachio scoop);  IG1 (vanilla scoop); 
EB3 (chocolate sauce); CR9 (cherry on top)
Ice Floe: IB1, IG1, Blender Pen
Cloud Dies: IG1, Blender Pen

I used a Pigma Micron pen to add the doodled frame around my image.  My sketch came from the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge this week.

Take a look at all the stops on this birthday party train today:
