It's time for round two of the Summer of Color 2012 Ice Cream Challenge! This week's challenge is mint chocolate chip. I made two entries this week. Kristin of Twinkle Twinkle, the hostess of this challenge posted the Baskins Robbin pic:

So, to briefly share how I go about creating my digital submission...I downloaded the pictures, opened them up in Photoshop, and then I use the color picker tool to create my color palette. Here are my two palettes:
From there, I create my ice cream cone using the color palette. I being by creating a "pattern" and start making layers. I used the eraser tool and the drop shadow to imitate the varying textures for the scoops of ice cream. For the waffle pattern in the cone, I decided to embellish it a bit and used a glitter style. I also used a "jewel" style to create the chocolate chips and to offer a bit of interest to the ice cream.
From there, I worked on my backgrounds, again creating layer after layer of colors using various brushes to create texture. The cones are moved into place, and my work is finished!
I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so they both got to come out to play!
Stay tuned for next week's challenge!
Again, as always, thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs and Toodles!
