WT168 Friends




Sorry it took my so long to post this card, but I was running late this morning to meet my PIL for lunch.
Some of our relatives from Virgina came and we all met in Savannah which is about a 45 minutes drive - I have made it in 30 - he,he,he!!!

First I wanted to play in this WT Challenge, but then I thought about it and I didn't really have a Stamp Set to work with.....but then I read Julia's instructions again and I ran with the *Vacation* theme!!!

Isn't *Vacation* the best time to take it easy and hang out with your friends???
Which led me to use the *Sweetybella* I have recently bought. This is my SCS buddy Denise aka *peanutebee* also known as this past weekends Featured Stamper - she totally rocks!!!

Anyway - that's the both of us eating our yummy, yummy favorite ice cream together!!! Make sure you hop over to Denise's blog to find her version of the *Sweetybella* Stamp!!! Isn't it an awesome card she has made for me???

For my card I have tried to use Beate's WSC#49 Sketch. I think I left one panel off - but that's where I have got the idea for this layout!!!

Since this is a *Vacation* card I went with the fun and bright colors - Yoyo Yellow, Real Red.
For the coloring of the image I have used Yoyo Yellow, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa, Brilliant Blue, Creamy Caramel. Everything was colored using a Blender Pen.

I have stamped the image twice and cut out the ice cream. Next I have used the 3-D Liquid Applique and dried it with the Heating Tool - I love how it pops up!!! Then I have raised them up with Stampin Dimensionals!!! I haved added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter to the flowers and my fab necklace I'm wearing - he,he,he!!!!

Denise's favorite flavor is Chocolate Mint and mine is Hawaiian Coconut. Do you think I have made it look alright - LOL???

Thanks flor looking!!!

Love it Silke! You and Denise look just rockin' after your touristy shopping trip. Ice cream with a friend is the best way to relax after a tough day like that! Did you know you cancel out the calories when you eat it with a friend! Love your colours and your card is wonderful!

Silke, another great card! What better vacation than with a friend, eating ice cream (by the beach of course) he, he, he. I really like the liquid applique. I'll have to try that sometime.

Girl, I love it!! hehe! Fun colors and the liquid applique is just AWESOME on ice cream.

I see your flavor is "Hawaiian Coconut"...not Keylime/Coconut like I had on my post. {smacking my head....doh!}
