Sweet Scoops Color Throwdown 93

I was blog surfing the other day and came across another great blog.  Color Throwdown is a weekly color challenge and I thought I'd give it a try.  The color challenge was Pink Pirouette, Mambo Melon and Baja Breeze - CTD93.  What a great combination!!  I decided to use my current go to set - Sweet Scoops.  I happened to have just a little Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette left in my stash.  I'm really glad both of these colors will be returning with the new catalog in July.

In order to achieve the shading on the ice cream and cone, I inked the stamp in a lighter shade, stamped off once and then sponged on the darker color directly on one side of the stamp.  For the ice cream I started with Pink Passion and sponged on Mambo Melon.  For the cone I inked Crushed Curry and then sponged More Mustard.  This technique adds a ton of depth to a solid image stamp.
