Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 208-Really Cool

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used stamps from Technique Tuesday and a bright, cheery color scheme for my card.

Really Cool-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Technique TuesdayThe ice cream cone from the Cool set is my focal image. I colored it with Copic markers and cut it out, then used dimensional dots to adhere it to a white panel. The set’s “you are really cool” sentiment was stamped in pink pigment ink on another white panel. After matting both panels on turquoise cardstock, I adhered them to a piece of chevron patterned paper on top of coordinating solid cardstock strips. A few super sparkly silver sequins finish off the design

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
