I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream!

I have been playing with the Ice Cream Shoppe stamp set this time around from Artistic Outpost. All stamps are available from Our Daily Bread Designs.
I decided to create invites this time around which I thought would be perfect for a birthday party.  I began by die cutting three Recipe Cards from white card using Eileen Hull's die. The background has been coloured with Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks. I applied each colour to a piece of recycled plastic packaging, spritzed with water and then dabbed the ink onto the background and then dried with a heat tool. Repeated the same process with the second colour and dried once again. I repeated this until I was happy with the coverage of colour.
I added a touch of background stamping using the Ephemera Backgrounds stamp and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
I printed off computer generated text which I die cut using one of Tim Holtz Thinlits Labels adding a touch of colour with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I also used part of the sentiment to add Ice Cream three times to each of the invites.
I stamped the ice cream cone with Black Archival Ink onto each of the invites. I also thought that these would make great recipe cards. You could add a homemade ice cream recipe to the back.
For added interest I included painted circles and scratchy lines using Picked Raspberry Distress Paint. I added Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges for definition.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
