Hot & Spicy - DCM

It's Friday, so it's time to tackle the daring cardmakers' challenge! Here are the specifics:

This week's Dare theme is a team effort rather than a challenge just thought up by just one of us. We'd like you to take the phrase "Hot and Spicy" and make of it what you will. It could be colour themed, food themed or maybe have just a hint of saucy spicy-ness

Hot and spicy, eh? I can give that a go. I'm going with color and theme for hot!


Doesn't get much hotter than the sun, and these colors always bring summer to mind for me. The images are all Imaginisce Snag 'em stamps colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. I used my new Megabilities dies from Spellbinders for the scalloped layers. I embossed the main layer with the Cuttlebug Perfectly Paisley embossing folder--see my post on creative Cuttling for the how-to's. I accented the embossing with score lines made with my Scor-It. Finally I added some sparkle to the popsicle with a Copic Spica glitter pen and then attached my Primas with a Robin's Nest Dew Drop at the center.
