Ready to do create this 0 calorie treat? Let's get started!

To get a faint stamped image for no-line coloring, use a sponge to daub Alloy ink onto the stamp, then stamp as usual. We are going to keep stamping this way until otherwise specified.

Start with the cherry... stamp and mask.

Stamp and mask the ice-cream scoop.

Let's make it a double... stamp another scoop of ice-cream!

Move the ice-cream scoop mask down to the bottom scoop and stamp your cone. 

Ok... Now that we have our ice-cream and cone stamped, we can move on to the toppings. Leave the mask on the cherry, and stamp the chocolate sauce... For this, we don't need to worry about being faint, so go ahead and ink up your stamp the normal way. 

Time to add some color!

I went with vanilla ice-cream... When coloring white (especially with no line coloring), you still need to define your shape by coloring the shadows. 

Now that our ice-cream is colored, and the shapes and shadows are defined, let's spice it up a bit.. 
Create a reverse mask by stamping the ice-cream scoop in the center of a square of Stamping Mask Paper and cut the ice-cream out while leaving the outer part of the mask in tact. Now place that over the bottom scoop of ice-cream  so you can see the scoop in the mask window. (make sure you mask the top ice-cream scoop again!)

Let's turn that vanilla into chocolate chip by stamping the sprinkles through the reverse mask. 

When all the masks are removed, you have an ice-cream cone that looks absolutely delicious!!

You can save your masks and reverse masks by sticking them on a sheet of acetate and storing them with your stamps... this way you can use them over and over!

Now let's add color to our card... Die cut 3 strips of fringe from the rainbow stripe paper.

The smallest of the Scalloped Border dies fits perfectly with the fringe. When you combine the two you end up with fringe with a soft scalloped edge... I LOVE this!

Attach your fringe to your card in rows. "Fluff" up the fringe to give added dimension and texture to your project!

Now you can embellish however you want! I kept it simple with a little ruffled ribbon and a few rhinestones.

See you soon!
