Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Design Team Challenge #2

This challenge was based on Neopolitan Ice Cream. Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. fun is that?! After thinking about it for awhile I decided to do a very literal translation of the challenge...

The ice cream cones are from Indie Art (my favorite cartridge!) with some minor changes done in Design Studio. I used Freezer Paper to cut the stencil with my E, ironed it on a t-shirt that we already had, then carefully applied sparkly fabric paint that I found at Michael's and Joann. Of course since chocolate is my favorite, it's the largest cone!
I had also cut out a phrase using Alphalicious, but decided at the last minute not to add it. It just looked like too much on a such a little shirt.

Now that I've gotten the hang of fabric painting (and trust me there was much trial and error involved in this process) I can't wait to make some more. Of course I need to make a matching one for her sister....
(The red-headed model in the picture is Breena - who definitely needs a bang trim....and a nap!)
