Sweet Treat

This little girl, a Gecko Galz image, is a very sweet little girl who is looking for a very sweet treat, perhaps a strawberry lemonade ice cream cone?


Materials:
Gecko Galz image and background paper from the June 2012 Lemonade paper pack.
Stampin' Up label and word stamps
Ranger Distress Ink: summer seasonal series: Picked Raspberry
Miscellaneous cloth trim from my stash
Wilton paper doily

Challenges entered:


Summer of Color Week Four Ice Cream Inspiration: Strawberry Lemonade




Art With No Boundaries: Summer Skies:  my dad made an impressionistic painting of a pink sky at daybreak.  This Gecko Galz paper reminds me of that pink sky along with a very sunshiny yellow sky--hot yellow sun because it's been over 100 degrees here for at least a week!

Frilly and Funkie:  Let's See Some Texture including material:  my paper doily (reminds me of the doily you get under your glass of ice cream at the parlor), label up on pop dots, and fabric trim 

Gecko Galz  Ephemera Emporium Crafting Challenges Yahoo Group: With A Touch of Fabric challenge due July 15

The sunset colours on this tag are lovely. How cool that it reminds you of a painting by your dad. I like the composition and the richness of the colours next to the whiteness of the doily. Thank you for joining our Summer Skies challenge at Art With No Boundaries.
