Sundae Birthday...

Ice Cream Sundae provided by our Sponsor - Delicious Doodles
I used: #1 DP #2 Sentiment #3 Dry Embossing #4 Button #5 Paper Punch
What a fun image to sculpt for this card... definitely had a good time with this one!  I'm using it for my DT card at this week's 613 Ave C challenge. The game is to use one item from each column in the chart to the right.
As you have deduced, Delicious Doodles is sponsoring the challenge this 2 week period and is providing the prize.  The '613' designers have created a multitude of lovely takes with the DD images - they can be seen at 613 Ave C along with the specifics of the challenge.

[Note: specific information on information supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • I used a "Paper Sculpting Technique" that consists of:  printing the focal image multiple times, coloring with Copics, fussy cutting different layers, sculpting the individual pieces [dry embossing each individual piece from the back using a large ball tool] and layering with foam tape to maintain the dimension.  In this one I used parts from three different layers.
  • I picked a masculine DP for the background and used an EK Success punch along the edge.  A scrap red piece was adhered underneath the 'bubbles'  to bring a festive look to the card with out getting too girly.
  • The sentiment was stamped on a pennant stamped and cut out.  
  • Red waxed linen was used to tie the pennant to the wafer stick and to sew the button over the cherry.
  • Inside developed with leftover papers from the front.
