Polkadoodle Challenge 37 - Ice Cream Colours

Friday's posts are like buses for me - none for a while and then all come around the corner together! New challenge time at Polkadoodles and the theme this week is:

Ice Cream Colours

I've gone for a raspberry ripple theme and used various Polkadoodle papers that I found in my stash along with an Emma Canning digi - Millie Birthday - which I've coloured with Promarkers.  I've used two of my fancy X Cut dies to create the card shape and also to frame the image.

The fancy swirly dies at the side are Marianne Creatables which have also been cut from Polkadoodle papers (I first cut them with thick card and then layered them up for extra strength).

The rather luminous felt flowers at the bottom of the card are not quite that bright in real life and are a much better colour match than they look!  I've used my Die-Namics rolled flower dies for them and I think I'm getting to grips with how to make them although when I try paper or vellum they look terrible, so for the time being I'm sticking with felt!

Good luck with the challenge - for more details, pop over to the challenge blog.
