Candy Cane Girl


Hello everyone!  I found this sweet image in Sassy Cheryl's bargain bin.  It's appropriately named Candy Cane Girl and inspired me to get a jump start on some Christmas cards.  I combined the image with a sentiment from Doodle Pantry and a Christmas tree made with a Taylor Expressions die.  I paper pieced the dress digitally before coloring  and shading the image with Copics.  I also added some color to the candy cane with a red glaze pen.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Sketch Challenge Rainy Days SC June 20 -- sketch
Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #80 -- show me what you are working on
Crimbo Crackers Challenge 18 -- Anything Christmas Goes
Paper Play Challenge Week 25 -- Use a Die

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!
