Just Be Cool

Just be cool--that is the sentiment of my card today!
Hello, friends! I hope you are staying cool. It has been hot, hot, hot here in my part of Canada. I am NOT complaining though! Canadians are well-known for their coolness (just ask Ryan Gosling!)! I am doing my part to share a cool card that was inspired by my uber talented fellow Canadian cardmaker Ardyth. Her card over CASology left me in awe and I just had to CASE it! You can find out more details about Ardyth's coolest card over her blog MASKerade.
 
 Here is my take!
030
 Supplies: SRM Stitching sticker, Basic Grey (Knee High), Life of the Party Birthday by Hero Arts, Glossy Accent (Ranger)

Aren't these cotton candy (which look like ice cream to me) COOL? By using Glossy Accent (with a guide of a toothpick), I was able to create the melting effect
 Thanks for the inspiration, Ardyth! Again, Ryan knows what COOL factors he has. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, this is just as cool as Ardyth's card! So clever to turn the cotton candy into ice cream cones! And I love the melty action, too!

oh yes Virginia, you are cool! These look fab-I loved Arydth's card and had to pin it! I just got some glossy accent last week and have only used it once, so will have to give it a go. Just did my card for Jackie's challenge using FSS stamps-take a peek if you get chance-awaiting yours!!

Lovely card! I love how you made the melting effect. TFS

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

Love your cool card! The bright colours and the shine are really sweet - I'm so happy that you found some inspiration in my card! (And every time I see Ryan, I feel a little sorry for him - does he know he's the victim of countless (innocent and fun) jokes at the hands of 40-something crafting ladies?? lol!

Linda R said...

Love your cool cards my friend. And once again that hottie Ryan has me smiling.

Hugs~
