TCP Tuesday 283-You Make Me Melt

It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge!  The new challenge theme is anything goes, so there's no reason to not play along with this one!  With Valentine's Day coming up soon, I went with a love-inspired design featuring everyone's favorite big eared bunny.

You Make Me Melt card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
I took a little inspiration from Neapolitan ice cream and went with a yummy pink, vanilla, and chocolate color scheme.  I colored up the bunny from the Lickable set with Copic markers, then carefully cut out the colored image.  The bunny was adhered to a vanilla panel, using foam tape for dimension.  I set the image panel on an angle on a pink dotted patterned paper panel.  A chocolate brown panel was tucked between the image panel and patterned paper panel for a bit of contrast.  I used the CutUps Framed Up 2 die to cut a long pale pink banner strip.  After stamping the set's "you make me melt" sentiment on the strip, I added across the cardfront, slipping it underneath the raised bunny image.  A few pink sequins were scattered around the cardfront to add some sparkle to the design.  The finished panel was adhered to a vanilla card base.

Be sure to stop by the TCP blog for more inspiration and for all the details on how you can play along with the challenge.  Challenge participants have a chance to win a generous Cat Cash prize and to be named the Swanky Stamper of the month, which earns you a slot in an upcoming TCP release blog hop along with a selection of stamps from the release!  Be sure to link up your card on the TCP blog for a chance to win.
