THE OUTLAWZ COPICS AND OTHER MARKERS CHALLENGE : FRIDAY 7 JUNE

This week's challenge at The Outlawz on the Friday Copics challenge group is a fun one... somewhere in the world it's National Chocolate Ice Cream day (and there's proof that chocolate ice cream is so important in our lives that there is a whole day dedicated to it- LOL!). so you are challenged to make a card celebrating

NATIONAL CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM DAY

Here is my DT card to inspire you, featuring an image from KENNY K, called TROUBLEMAKER


I printed the image onto Bazzill basics white cardstock and coloured with alcohol markers and a white gel pen.  Here is a better look at the image:

I really love the way the texture of the board shows through, and how it accepts the colouring ink.   

The chocolate ice cream was given a coat of glossy accents (I hope you can see it in this detail pic):

To complete my card I used the following from my stash:

white CS base card
turquoise CS card mat
red CS card mat
floral DP
lace
roses
pearls
peel off birthday sentiment
peel off flower with gem centre

The sponsor for this month's challenges is DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY
