Pickles & Ice Cream

Hello everyone,
Just want to take a minute to thank my followers, old and new.  Your lovely comments mean so much and are so encouraging.   I debated over 6 months before I began this journey and wonder now why it took me so long.  I truly am enjoying myself and hope that I inspire you in some way.

Now, on to today's card.  I've used a Krista Smith digital from Saturated Canary called Ice Cream & Pickles.   How fitting for a new Mom-to-be.


I started with the sketch on Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #69 - (ooh I won) but think I might have strayed a little  ~ artistic license I hope (lol). The DP is from a Basic Grey collection "Nook & Pantry" and the sentiment is a LOTV set.     Martha Stewart edge punch was used  and I paper pieced her maternity top with paper from the same collection.

My usual Copic colours for brown E29, E25, E23 and E21 were used for her hair.  Skirt was coloured with RV10,  RV00 and RV000.   Skin tones are E11, E01, E000, E0000 and R20 for the cheeks.   I dotted different colours on the ice cream to represent sprinkles. 

Entering into the following challenges:

Fab n Funky Challenge #124   - Green   - I won
Crafting for All Seasons #28  - Many Layers
Digital Tuesday Challenge #163 - Anything goes
Craft your Passion #113 - Chevrons - I Won
Fashionista Challenge #3  - Simply Summer  (thought the ice cream was fitting :)
Nutcrafters Challenge #19  - New beginnings  - I'm a Winner
Saturated Canary Challenge #19  - Anything goes



Hope you all have a great day.  Hugs, Pat K.

Gorgeous card, Pat, as always! I bought this image the minute I first saw it, I think it's fabulous... I'm keeping it with my daughter in law in mind, but she and my son have been together for over ten years now and still no sign of kids ao I may cave and just use it - she's too cute to sit on my cyber shelf, lol. I love your paper piecing, and the sprinkles, of course Donna ☺
