Be Sweet

For this little ice cream cone card, I combined a couple of different techniques I saw this week for challenges I really wanted to enter.  First, the challenge at Papertrey Ink was all about doodling around stamped images.  I used Papertrey Ink's Sweet As Can Be Stamp Set to create my ice cream cone, scoops and (sweet) sentiment.  Once it was stamped, I water colored it by using the water color technique shared at V's Sweet Ideas. I hand painted in the ice cream scoops with water color - a very new technique for me.  Next, I doodled around the stamped ice cream scoops and cone. The word "Be" is a Simon Says Stamp die-cut that I worked into the sentiment.  I enjoyed both of these great techniques, and was delighted to be able to play along in these challenges.  It's fun implementing different techniques together.
Here are the challenges where I'm able to share my card:
