Sunday Sweets anyone???

Hello and happy Sunday!
Anita here again. 
Thought I would share some Sunday Sweetness and show you how I made this ice-cream cone that looks good enough to eat!

I used 'Choc Ice' by Ann Lederhose - I just love this chippy set! - This is what you get in the pack (plus a smaller one which is not pictured) They actually come apart - or you can leave them together if that suits you better..... I took mine apart so I could add lots of dimension!

I coloured everything except the 'ice cream top' with this glimmer mist which is the perfect cone colour!

Now time for the ice cream! I used a sticky ink (perfect medium or versamark) and ultra thick embossing powder (you can use normal embossing powder - you may just need more coats)..

When the first coat is melted and still hot (be careful), I dip it straight back into a pile of the powder to build up the thickness (I ended up with 3 coats on mine)...

Then while the embossing powder was hot and melted, I sprinkled in some little beads!  After I had the beads where I wanted them, I used the heat tool to re-melt again just to make sure those little beads don't go anywhere!

I then stuck it all together and added a cute little ribbon and ta da - looks good enough to eat don't you think!?

Thanks for hanging out with me this week!
Make sure you have a go at the challenge - lots of fun with colour and chippies!
Enjoy your Sweet Sunday!
