Summer of Color - Mint Choc Chip

Here is my take on week two of the Summer of Color challenge over at Twinkle, Twinkle. Each week features a different icecream flavour and the inspiration for this week was Mint Choc Chip. I wasn't too sure about working with these colours but in fact I really enjoyed myself and I must say I'm really getting into the ATC thing now - might have to find a swap site...
Oh dear, they didn't really scan too well (because of the lumpiness I think!) - in real life they're more textural and less blurry than this! Don't have time for too much waffle tonight as I need to get some sleep before I go to work in the morning (work SO gets in the way sometimes!), but I used acrylic paints with a crackle medium and walnut stain distress ink, a swirl of pearlescent glue, some tiny scraps of ribbon and a couple of glittered brads. The flower on the left was a printed chipboard shape which I roughed up a bit and the spiral rose was made from an old book page coloured with distress inks and cosmic shimmer mist.
Really will have to improve on my photography!

Gorgeous - just as lovely as your rainsbow sherbert ones that I've just visited. I love the single flower - it's so effective, but I also love the rose on the other one - both are very lovely!
