Candy Cane Sweetness

I know, I know. It's the day after Halloween and I've jumped right ahead to Christmas. What's a girl to do. Actually, December seems likes such a busy month, I don't know how much scrapping I can fit in then, so November works for me. ;D

You are going to love the challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge site, because today's challenge is #71 - "Anything Goes". I love no parameters ;D

I just can't help squeal with delight over this Lilli Claire - Sweet Christmas Dreams. She is one of my very fave Christmas images at the Tiddly Inks store.

I have a quick Copic tip for you. I don't have a lot of reds, in fact I only have the standard R20 R22 and R27 standby that I use for all my red and pinks. I needed to make this standby go a little further and do deep red or burgundy for this card. W1 worked perfectly. It deepened and dulled down the red giving it a darker red appearance. My wish list is quite long. More ranges of red Copics are waaaaaaay down the list.

This card is submitted for the following challenges:

A Gem of A Challenge
- #33 Cold and Frosty
Come and Get It Challenge - Anything Goes Week
Lollipop Crafts - #55 Anything Goes

Hi Stephanie!
Your card is super sweet and fun! I love that image and your coloring is off the wall amazing! I think the W's (Copics) make everything happy with what we have. Beautiful papers and the layout is terrific!
I love that you are a self taught Copic colorist, it makes it so much more rewarding yea?
Gorgeous card, thanks so much for linking up with us at Lollipop Crafts!

Stephanie, such a sweet card! I love Lilli Claire and she is beyond adorable here. Great tip regarding expanding your Copic colors with grays. It looks wonderful and just deepens the red a wee bit. What a clever girl, you are ;D Hugz, Cheryl
