Just Desserts Sundae

There's new rubbah in the house!!! I ordered this yummy Sweet Treats set from Pink Cat Studio (a Canadian company, by the way) before I came to Calgary and had it shipped to Dana's house so we could play. It was waiting for me when I arrived...giggle! AND, we ordered some Elzybells (the original size ones from the UK) and they arrived yesterday. Oh, the choices...I had a difficult time deciding what to stamp, so I combined my new rubbah. The image is from Sweet Treats and the sentiment is from the darling Elzybells set Just Desserts

The sundae image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Gina K pure luxury and coloured with copics. For the first time in a long time, I coloured before choosing my papers...it was great to use all the colours I wanted. Then I cut out the image with a circle Nestabilitie and layered it onto a scallop of chocolate. 

I was digging through Dana's scrap papers and pulled out these patterned pieces from Little Yellow Bicycle...they seemed to match and the colours remind me of sorbet. And I have to say, it's SO much fun using someone else's supplies...grin! I did some paper piercing around the edge and tied a bow with chocolate ribbon from her stash. I finished it off with a Prima and a Kaiser rhinestone. 

At the very end I added some liquid applique and glitter to the whipped cream and a layer of crystal effects so the dessert bowl. Doesn't this look so YUMMY!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
