This week the challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog is RIBBON, FLOSS AND/OR TWINE. I've used a brand new image for my card this week named Sweet.
My mom and dad met in an ice cream parlor. Mom was working there and Dad would come in with his friends. Then my Dad started to come in and order ice cream just so he could talk to her. So, this card conjures up a lot of sentiment for me.
The punch border is by Stampin' Up and I used two types of ribbon on my card, the silver (from Really Reasonable Ribbon) and the red and white checked (from Stampin' Up). The buttons are from my stash and the ice cream soda in the middle of my bow is a button from Dress It Up. My flowers are from Wild Orchid, my leaves are a punch and the yellow swirls are a die by Cheery Lynn and I used my Cuttlebug machine to cut the swirls. The sentiment is from Whimsy and I used a combination of round punches by Marvy. The corner is a precut cardboard diecut and I painted it silver and then sprinkled glitter over it. I used Glossy Accents on the sign "Sweet!", on the glass on the shaker and on the ice cream soda glass.
I used Copics to color my image and I love how her jeans colored up. On the metal part of the stool, napkin holder and top of the shaker I used my Wink of Stella Clear pen for the metallic look. I made my floor by using my pens and making tiny dots...do you remember the old linoleum floors that had the splatter look? That's the look I tried to achieve.
