I used two stencils that I cut with my Cameo cutting machine.
For the background, I sponged several pastel colors. I placed a second stencil over the sponged panel and added some embossing paste over part of my background.
I die-cut the cone (pink card stock for the ice cream, burlap for the waffle cone). I sponged brown on the burlap to give it more interest ... and sponged pink around the outer edges of the ice cream scoop, coated it with crystal effects and when dry, added a few dazzling details to the top for sprinkles.

The backgrounds you create with your homemade stencils are just fabulous! Love the pastels combined with a layer of embossing paste, a technique I never thought of! The burlap cone is genius and adds the texture! I LOVE this card!
