You're Sweet *sneak peek*

Ok, so yesterday I said that the milkshake was probably my favorite image. But this swirly cone is a very close second. And I mean close! I love ice cream so much, although, lately I haven't eaten it too much. It is in the house, mind you, it's just that it has gotten so expensive that I am trying not to eat too much.

Anyhow, the other night I was checking out the SCS sketch challenges, hoping to find a little inspiration. I found sketch number 209 and liked it. I decided to use the Scor-Pal that I received from dear Beth (thank you!) to make a textured background that mimicked the ice cream cone. I'm sure that I am not the first one to do this, but I haven't really looked around for other examples. I think it turned out okay. Maybe I could have sanded down the lines a bit to make it show up better, but it is too late now!

We are getting ever so close to the release of these images on January 7th. I hope you all are enjoying the previews floating around. I have seen some really neat ones. Stop by tomorrow for another!
