ABC11I9: Today's letter is the letter I. I for ice cream! I think that is the only I that I have going here.
My background panel is made using Monday's technique lover's challenge of merging backgrounds. I merged French Filigree and En Francais stamping each of them on half of the background. Then, since I wanted an ice cream themed card, I sponged it in thirds going for the neapolitan ice cream look. Chocolate Chip seemed an appropriate ink name for that!
I used today's sketch to make the card, matting my back panels with Chocolate Chip and my circle in Pixie Pink.
I stamped my tumbling ice cream cone to make the border piece and watercolored the ice cream to all be strawberry but watercolored the three cones on the truck to be in the three neapolitan colors.
I colored my ice cream truck with Copic markers, gave it some shadow on the ground and then decided the white was a bit too bright so lightly sponged Soft Sky around the truck.
Do you like ice cream? I sure do!
Thanks for looking!

Terrific take on the sketch. I like the background with the merged background stamps and the sponging of the Neapolitan colors. That was clever! Cute ice cream truck. I like ice cream, too. Wonderful card. TFS

Very cute card for the challenge! Brings back memories of childhood. The popcycle truck would come around quite often when we were at my grandparents. We would hear the music and run in the house and ask Grandma for a dime for a treat. She almost always said yes. ( Shows you that I am OLD when treats were that price!)

I can almost hear the little song that these trucks play as they make their rounds through the neighborhood. I have such fond memories of the ice cream man that came through my grandparents neighborhood. Great thoughts of summer.
