PP419 CAS Sweet Treats

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the sweet and talented LeAnne is our hostess with a clean-and-simple challenge: Sweet Treats.

As many of my teammates were, I was inspired by the candy cane stripes. Though I don't have any candy cane stamps, I remembered that I'd purchased this digi set from Power Poppy last year and never used it yet, so this was the perfect opportunity. If any of you would like to hop in to the world of digi stamping, this would be a great stamp to try because this image is only $1. I colored it with my Copic markers, and then went over the ribbon with several coats of Wink of Stella for a silvery shine.

I'm also playing along with the Creative Confetti Challenge at Power Poppy again this week, which is Just Color.

Stamp Sets: Candy Cane Classic Digital Stamp Set (Power Poppy), Good Greetings (Stampin' Up)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Layering Square Dies (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Wink of Stella (Zig)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!

What a fabulous CAS card Sandy - your colouring really brings these candy canes to life! I never think to look for a digi stamp if I'm stuck for an image - great tip!

Anne Marie Hile said...

I always forget about using digi stamps, Sandy! Your coloring is fantastic and really makes that sweet image the star of the show, indeed. Of course, the Wink of Stella is the perfect finishing touch. CAS perfection! :)

Sandy, sorry I am so late commenting on this gorgeous card. Seriously fabulous coloring, my friend. I agree with Joanne, your shading and highlights really do bring the candy canes to life. Great idea to use a digi, too.
