I am so happy to be Guest Designer for this week’s CASology challenge!
The Rainbow Paddle Pop! An Australian ice-confection icon! Ok, so that may be a bit of an overstatement, but you would be hard-pressed to find an Aussie kid who hadn’t tried one or several during their lifetime. They have stood the test of time, albeit minus the blue food colouring…!
Here is Raspberri Cupcake’s homage to the Rainbow Paddle Pop, albeit in fudge form – proof that Rainbow paddle pops inspire in many ways:
I tried my hand at masking and inking again. I made 3 stencils using post-it notes (ice-cream; popstick and drip), inked, then embossed with a pearly embossing powder. I was trying to replicate the creamy condensation on an ice-cream on a hot day. I also wanted to add some texture to what is otherwise a one-layer card.
For the pop stick, I made another mask out of post-its, using an actual pop-stick as a guide. I then stamped it with a woodgrain stamp and coloured over it with a Stampin’ Write marker to soften the lines. Finally, I stamped the sentiment.
Funny how a simple one-layer card uses all this:
I realised afterwards that the pic was missing the marker and the embossing powder. Can’t keep track of it all!
And that’s it. Hope it conjures up images of rainbows for you!
Happy crafting 🙂
