Tiddly Inks Challenge #11: What's Up?

Hello there! This week the Tiddly Inks challenge was to use red, white, and blue.... I wanted to do something a bit different than the obvious patriotic theme. I thought of this image and realized it would be perfect!

What's Up? Well, not her ice cream scoops, that's for sure! This little cutie had a triple decker cone, but has lost her Coconut Cream and Blueberry Buckle...that just leaves her with the Pomagranite Pizzazz. Poor thing! Do you think the 3 second rule applies? LOL

The image is colored with pencils and her dress is paper pieced. I used the long edge of a rectangular nestie for the scalloped border on the horizontal strip. I also place a 1/4" strip of the Ruby Red underneath the organdy ribbon, so the DP wouldn't show through.

Image: Tiddly Inks Digital Stamp "Whoops"
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Ruby Red and Brocade Blue, Frances Meyer DP
Embellie: Ruby Organdy Ribbon (my stash)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots

I think I'm hungry for some ice cream! How about you?

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the holiday; blessings to the people, and their families, who serve in the military for the USA. You are appreciated!

So cute, that sentiment is perfect with her. I think the three second rule applies for sure, especially if the white scoop is coconut!
