4 Scoops of Chocolate

Hello and welcome to another fabulous TCP Tuesday!  Woo Hoo!  

This week we have a really great sketch designed by Lisa.  It’s a tall and skinny design and it’s really fun.  


Oh man...I could not resist filling my bowl with chocolate ice cream!  It is my favourite flavour for sure.   I used two TCP sets, Life is Like Ice Cream and Small Sayings.  I coloured the bowl up with Copics and then added detailing with my prismacolor pencils to really give the ice cream some texture and warmth.   Along the right side you can see one of the sketch elements that I used to pair with the coloured design - I made the long red strip to match the cookies/straws in the ice cream.  

Here’s the great sketch.  


It’s a Tall and Skinny design that’s really fun to play with....and even better Alma’s designed a cut file for this sketch that you can use as a PDF or on your Silhoutte to make designing easier.  I used the cut file and it made it a snap!  



Here’s some of the detailing, some old SU designer paper, a striped embossing folder, baker’s twine, enamel dots and a mini clothespin.  :)  



Here’s the inside of the card stamped with some of the hearts from the Small Sayings set.  

So, now were inviting YOU to play along with this great sketch... and head on over to the TCP Blog to see more great inspiration from the Cat Pack!
