You're Better Than Ice Cream!

I made this card for the SKETCH CHALLENGE on SCS.

I used this acrylic block to stamp the ice cream cones in a straight line. It was amazingly easy because I used the etched lines on the block to orient the cones and evenly space them apart. I stamped the cone in creamy caramel and then colored them in with a Copic marker. I was amazed that the ink didn't run. I didn't realize I could stamp in dye SU ink and then color in with Copics. I will be doing that again I am sure! The scoop of ice cream was stamped in Memento black ink. It is the best black ink that I have found for using with Copic markers so far! It dries super quick, requires no heat setting and is a nice rich black. I colored in the ice cream scoops with a Copic marker (BG10 I think). Then I decided I wanted some bling for the scoops so I placed a strip of 1/8 inch red line tape to the bottom of each scoop. I lightly heated with my heat gun (to increase the stickiness) and then dumped some clear seed beads over it. Then I "smoosh" the beads in and let it set for about a minute. All I could think about was a "cherry on top", but I didn't want to introduce another color, so I decided to make a glittered dew drop and added on to the top of each cone.
