What Candy Canes? ~ Sandra Caldwell New Release
Hi everyone! The other day, Sandra Caldwell had a contest on her Facebook group looking for Candy Cane image suggestions. If she chose one of our ideas to illustrate, we would get that digi first. I suggested a big haired woman with candy canes sticking out of it and she not only chose it but nailed it! How absolutely cute is this image called 1249 What Candy Canes?
I just had to colour her up right away using Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. She was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black card stock. After trimming her out leaving a narrow black border, foam tape was added to the back of the image. I just love her sweet expression!
A black card stock mat was cut to fit just inside the 5 x 6 inch white card base. A rectangle of black and white checked patterned paper was cut to leave an eighth of an inch border of the black mat showing. The Keep Calm sign, a free download from the Internet, was printed on white card stock and then matted with black. Wide dotty washi tape was adhered to white card stock and cut into three fishtail flags which were adhered on the top and left side. White die cut snowflakes adhered offset to black ones were used to embellish the flags. White flat pearls were added to the snowflake centers. To finish off the card, a black doodled border was added to the outside of the patterned paper.
Thanks for popping by today. My little candy cane friend and I appreciate that. To see more of Sandra's awesome images, be sure to visit her Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs. There is an absolute ton of fabulous images which are sure to inspire you and call your name :)
