We All Scream For Ice Cream Colour


If you are already a subscriber at the Doodle Den at Kate Hadfield Designs you would have had an email on Friday with a free download link to a brand new set of images for We All Scream For Ice Cream as a special treat before it went into the store.

There is a coloured set and also outline stamps. I have made a card with each and this is my first using the coloured ones. My hubby loves a Mr Whippy soft ice cream and the 'cream' topping image looks just like a soft whipped ice cream. I made an ice cream using the short cone, cream and a wafer stick. I isolated 2 of the chunks in the chocolate chunks image and placed these on the swirls.

The background has been made to fit a long slim card (DL). The bottom layer is the dark brown from Painted Pretties. The foreground layer is the beige paper from the same kit.  

On top of this layer I added the diamond pattern from Everyday Overlays. This emulates the pattern in the cone and adds a bit of interest without adding colour. I dropped the opacity to give it a lighter effect. These overlays are so useful for adding pattern to plain papers.

The digital part of the card was assembled in Affinity Designer. It is very easy to create a card front by manipulating the layers, tweaking the sizes and elements as needed. I added the text straight onto the background and printed out the full image on matte photo paper. 

I mounted this onto a dark brown card base. The gold outline is from a roll of stickers that I have had for must be around 15 years from Lakeland Limited when they sold crafty stuff. I have 2 different sets with silver, gold, pink & purple and have used them so much over the years. They will probably outlive me before I use them up.....

Finally I used some glossy accents to add shine to the chocolate pieces. They remind me of chocolate covered raisins (can you tell I am on a diet LOL)

At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.

Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.
