Oalf frozen card plus preview of June sotm

Hello all! I made this card with the upcoming June 2015 stamp of the month and svg file by Christopher Lopez, a friend that is in a cricut Facebook group.
The finished card measures at 5x7. This card was made for my twin cousins that are 6. One wanted an ice cream card and the other wanted a popsicle card. They both like the movie frozen and I enjoyed watching part of the movie while my aunt nand uncle were driving. I wanted this card to be fun for the 4 of them. I started with lagoon paper and stamped with lagoon ink the ice cream cone and popsicle pattern. Here's a short video of how I did that:

Here's what the finished stamped background looked like:
Oalf was cut all on white card stock so I could use my touch twin markers and get him just the right color.
Here he is in the coloring stage:
Here is a short video of a tip to easily put pop dots on your work:
I love how the card turned out and I added some ctmh epoxy bubbles to the right bottom to finish.
I also stamped and cut out the ice cream cone and popsicle stamp. I have enjoyed practising with the touch twin markers that ctmh now carries. For the inside of the card, I stamped and cut more images fromt he June sotm that comes out next june.
Here's what they look after shading with markers and adding to the inside of my card:
All Close to My Heart Supplies used:
Shinhan Touch Twin Markers(all but the greens and purple used)
I hope you enjoyed this post and found the tips helpful. I love how this card turned out and I had a lot of fun making it. I hope my twin cousins love it. They are such fun girls. I just adore them! I will do a marker coloring tutorial when I feel that I have gotten the hang of it. I just basically colored all the lightest color and built color from there. It's a learning process as I have never used alchol inks before. I do love coloring and I have had a great time with all these great new products. I am about to close my first gathering and I plan to order several of these August Picture my life specials. I have never ordered them before, but I have gotten to preview what my CTMH friends have gotten and so I know it will be so much fun and easy. All the guess work has been taken care of.
Here's the specials this month that I am excited about!
