inky + textured ice cream cone

so far this week i've played with foiled mist, confetti tape and today i'm getting messy with texture paste! i created a little cool & sweet treat with some ink blending and colored texture paste:
to create this card blend some light pink ink on the top 1/2 of a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 panel. i like spun sugar distress ink on smooth bristol cardstock.

when the first layer of ink is dry, apply pieces of painter's tape to create stripes and add a darker pink. i used worn lipstick distress ink.
to create a cone, apply create a "v" with more tape and then blend a light brown ink like antique linen distress ink.


with a background created, use reinkers to color the paste "ice cream". i started out be testing 3 shades of pink, 2 pigment reinkers and 1 distress ink. my sweet friend lisa is a texture expert and as she cautioned, the distress reinker did thin the paste out a bit.

and with 3 pretty shades of pink, i decided i wanted orange and the only reinker i had was distress ink spiced marmalade but it worked well.
apply the paste in a scoop shape, add a little glitter and let dry. the color may darken when dry.

add a sentiment, some splatter and ta-da! 
hope you have a great saturday!

xo,
carly
