Boo-boo alert! Avert your eyes those who are sensitive to outrageous failures in producing half-decent cards! Well, I HAVE promised to share my goods AND my bads with the blogging world...

Sad thing is it could have worked perfectly well if I hadn't changed my mind at the last minute and matted everything on chocolate brown instead of bright yellow. Too late now.

I still like the gorgeous Banana Split image by Isabella though. Isn't it yummy? Coloured with Copics, smothered in clear glaze, liquid applique, beads and glitter. As usual. 'Cos I don't DO subtle.

And the layout (sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch) is actually very nice. See, positive thinking! Aren't you proud of me?!

Apologies for photos, very overcast day and I did not want to use a flash since it would have smeared horrible glare on top of all the glazed areas.

The papers I used are from K & CO Cut n' Paste mat stack.

And funnily enough, Allison was kind enough to let me embellish my blog with her "Me Likey" badge for this card I had considered a boo-boo:

Thanks a million, Allison!

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy - Birthday with a sweet treat

Pile it On - Make it Sweet

Tanda Teaser,- Vivid Colours (Hah!)

Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

What are you talking about? This rocks my world! I love all the springy yumminess...in fact, I am off to blog it!


This is totally scrumptious Annika and the colours are beautiful. Love the sentiment (how true that is)!, and the 3-d effect.

Hi Annika! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I can't beleive you don't like this ice cream card. I am very hard on myself too but when I look at my cards the day after I make them, I love them! You obviously know how to put colors together! The ice cream looks good enough to eat. I love your mother's day card with the personalized towel hanging on the line!

The only thing I dont like about this card is that its not in my house for me to look at. I am saving this to my special file for when I need ideas and inspiration. And I am adding you to my Reader! oh, and Allison sent me. I am glad she did!

Viv said...

Yum! This is cute Annika! Love your sundae ! I actually coloured this in for my IS card but hated my attempt so much it was filed in the rubbish and I went for pie instead! !!hee heee!

This is gorgeous - perfect for the challenge. Thanks for joining the Tanda Teaser.

Thanks for the comment you left on my lilies. The ribbon is something from my collection that I have had a looong time. Source is Unknown. By the way this card should be entered in Isabella's Challenge this week. Perfect for that...maybe I overlooked that you had entered there?

Yosha said...

This is awesome! I love how you included diff patterns. Way to think outside the box!

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Holy moly Annika!!! This looks so real it's almost unbelievable. What a fab coloring job and that liquid applique, honestly, looks like whipped cream. WONDERFUL JOB with this Isabella's image!!!
