Yummy Mimi :-)

I received my new Pink Gem stamps a few days ago and this gorgeous Ice Cream Mimi was amongst them :-) Isn't she gorgeous, I love the photo of the little girl that inspired this stamp too, you can see it here if you haven't seen it go and have a look ,,, soo cute :-)

I coloured her with copics but kept the colours very pale. i thought there was enough colour in the paper !! :-) I 3D'd her legs and the ice cream so they really stick out ! :-) I added a bit of glitter too on the ice cream,,, yummy !!

I made the background by dabbing a dusty concorde distress ink pad on a non stick sheet, sprayed it with water and swirled the card around in it. When it was dry I stamped foliage using a pine needles distress ink pad. The tree trunk is a Magnolia stamp that I stamped onto patterned paper. I had a tiny bit of grass patterned paper that I used too :-)

The papers are Stamping Up and the sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set, I am using this particular sentiment set alot lately, they just seem to fit so nicely ! :-)

The flowers were plain white prima flowers which I inked with worn lipstick and dusty concorde distress inks then sprayed with water to smudge it :-) I did mean to spray them with glimmer mist too but I liked them as they were so decided not to !

I am entering this card into the following challenges :-

The Sketch and Stash Challenge, Becky has made this gorgeous sketch for us to follow and we have to use something new or old and neglected, well I used my new stamp :-) I would also like to congratulate Jill on joining the Design Team :-)

The Charisma Cardz Challenge
whose theme is 'Something Yummy'

The Colour Create Challenge who have a fab colour scheme of Pink Blush / Lilac / Mossy Green/ They also have the option of using die cuts, well my nestie shape is a die cut ! does that count, well if not it was an optional extra anyway so it doesn't matter :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
