Ice cream

Namely the old fashioned Neapolitan ice cream and that's the challenge this week at Less is More, sooooo I thought I'd try to do a 70's theme using a bit of feather and these super ice cream colours...

I've used a stencil of trailing leaves and flowers and used a selection of colours in Sahara sand pumice stone for the chocolates shades and frosty pink and coral berry for the strawberry ice cream shades...For the bird I stamped him on cream card in Saharan sand - fussy cut him and added some dusky pink feathers to his tail for a vintages/70's look.  Topped off with a simple gold embossed phrase on a strip of Vellum that I thought went well with the theme and a few 70's sequins that are again now fashionable in the card world and on clothes.  What goes round comes round so the saying goes.....

Some family time on holiday last week on the Yorkshire Coast (some beautiful stretches of beach there were too) and had to show my youngest enjoying his ice cream in the sunshine we were lucky enough to have!


  1. A lovely retro card. Great stencilling and love the pink feather embellishment on the bird. So fun. Thank you for playing along with us this week at Less is More.

  2. Such a great card. Your stenciling is just perfect. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  3. A beautiful card, brilliant stencilling - so pretty.

  4. Your card is fantastic Susan! The mellowness of the ombré style inking on the flowers is super and yes, you really captured that 70s retro feel. The things I really love on this card are the delicate vellum that you stamped the sentiment on, and the fab and frivolous feather on the bird. Such fun! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Less is More xx
