I got this stamp for my birthday a few months ago but have not got round to making a card with it but when I saw the colour combination from Colour Create of "Mint, Chocolate and Cream" it shouted out Mint Ice Cream to me. I have used the layout from this week's Create4Fun.
I have used a mixture of papers by My Mind's Eye, Clare Curd's The Big One and Papermania Antique Cream paper pack.
The image is my only Magnolia stamp and I have used the following Promarkers to colour it:
Vanilla Ice Cream - Pastel Yellow, Buttercup and Primrose
Mint Ice Cream - Grass, Apple and Meadow Green
Wafer - Caramel, Tan and Vanilla
Chocolate Hearts - Walnut, Henna and Cocoa
I'm really liking the Green and Orange colour combination at the moment and think it is very "Spring" so I am entering Stamp with Fun. I have used the sketch from Whiff of Joy. As I have used "Orange" I;m also entering Stampavie and More.
The papers are from My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow pack.
I am additionally entering the "Anything Goes" from Secret Crafter Saturday and the "Celebrations" theme over at Cute Card Thursday.
