"My Time" to color...

Ahhh...the weekend is finally here and that means Lauren and the "My Time" to Create team have a brand new challenge for you.
Voila! Is it just me or do these colors remind you of a banana split?
Perhaps I had chocolate on the brain, but I decided to just go with it!
Here's what I came up with...
The images are from "Here's the Scoop" by My Favorite Things. For the base, I used Kraft cardstock and stamped the sundae image on it with Sahara Sand ink. By doing that, I was able to add interest to the background without taking away from the main image. The next layer is Purely Pomegranate cardstock that was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder - love that thing!

For the main panel, I paper pieced the wall with some Bo Bunny polka dot cardstock and colored with my Copics. Then I added some Doodlebug Sugar Coating to the ice cream. In my world a girl can eat glitter ice cream...

Great color combo this week!
I hope you play along with us.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the team did:

Mmmmm..banana splits!! My fave! It does remind me of them now that you mention it and I've seen your YUMMY card :O) Too cute MacKenzie. I really love your center panel behind the main image and your paper piercing in the corners. Awesome!

Have a great weekend.

This is amazing! I never would have thought of banana splits, but I can see it now. I think I might need to make one for desert tonight :)
I love your colouring, and the texture of the wall.
