Favorite Ice Cream Flavor Challenge!

Last week, Kenny K's Krafty Krew challenged us to create a project inspired by our favorite ice cream flavor. I'm not a big fan of ice cream, but I do like Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.

I also used this week's sketch (#220/1) from Sketch Saturday's challenge blog.

Here's my card using Captain Locke!

Captain Locke was colored using Copic markers, which were chosen to represent Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and to go with Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante 8x8 pad. I've used the heck out of this pad, so I clearly will need to get another. But back to the project. . .

I colored her using some of the new stuff I learned last Saturday. I have a light source. I chose colors using the 10 + 2 rule to give more contrast. And I have a few cast shadows. I couldn't figure out the floor shadow, but such is life. Black Glaze pen was added to the buttons and silver/grey Glaze pen was added to the nailhead/studs on the bag. The shoes and goggle lenses were coated with clear Glaze pen.

Here's a close-up.

The sentiment was created using Maya Road rub-ons. Gosh. I wish more companies made alphabet rub-ons in cool fonts and smaller point sizes. The sentiment piece was matted with some leather-look specialty paper by FiberMark. I used strips of that same paper for the the horizontal elements. Staples from my ever-so-useful Tiny Attacher added a bit of visual interest.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card in the following challenges.
