Candy Cane King...

Oh what fun did I have last night seeing Breaking Dawn with my daughter and girlfriends! (the 3:30 bedtime was a bit rough, lol).  Now I can't wait for the second part of the movie to come out to find out what happens...I think I may have to read the books after the Holidays=)  The girls loved their Edward cards and got a lil' giggle from them too=)
Anyhow, let's talk about my card...this will be my youngest grandson Connor's Christmas Card=)  This is a Christy Croll image, King of the Candy Canes from Stamping Bella.  This card does triple duty for entry for the Bellarific Friday Challenge (a sketch challenge), Tiddly Inks Challenge #73- Anything Goes and Echo Park's FB Holiday Project Contest.

I stamped King of the Candy Canes in Memento Ink on Neenah, coloring with Copics.  I oversaturated the paper and had some bleeding out issues at his feet.  Rather than take the time to try to clean up my mess and risk ruining my image, I just fussy cut him out=)  I used stickles on his crown and stocking.  Went over his crown and candy cane with a glaze pen and the star with a glitter pen.  Island Indigo, Peach Parfait, Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas Paper, CB Snowflake Folder, Twine, Denami Design Buttons, SU Linen Thread.

Thank-you so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!


  1. You'll love the books. I devoured them!

    Lovely job on your card. Your Stickles show so well. Such a fun image just love how you coloured him up. I am also a huge fan of offset framing, I guess I like asymmetrical?
