You are the Coolest Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), You are the Coolest Card. :o)

To make this card, I was inspired with my own card that I made last summer (here). I used same products, went with similar design and used same color scheme, but went with different layout, used different sentiment and added highlights with a white pigment ink pen. 

I used stamps from a beautiful Jane's Doodles 'Cool' stamp set

How I made my card...

I stamped the sundae on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black marker.

As the watercolor paper I use is thin and I needed a thicker image, I stamped another sundae on a white cardstock paper scrap, colored it with a grey marker and fussy cut the sundae, this time leaving thin white border around it. I glued the watercolored sundae over it and the image was ready.

Next up was a card base. I glued a rainbow patterned paper stripe on a white side folded card base. I stamped the sentiment on a white cardsotck paper panel. I cut two more white cardstock paper panels, slightly smaller than the panel with the stamped sentiment, glued them together and then glued them on the back of the panel. I stacked panels to add dimension to my card without using a 3-D foam.

I glued one more white cardstock paper panel inside the card to make it sturdier.

Lastly, I glued some 3-D foam squares on the sundae and placed it on a card. As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights on the image and my card was finished. I love how it turned out!! :o)
