Candy Canes

A little sugar for today's posting. The image was stamped in red, then I used a .005 Micro Pen to outline the candy canes in black and outlined the bow in black (over the red). The picture does not do the candy canes justice, I used a clear and red spica pen to add sparkle, then coated them with crystal lacquer and they look much better IRL. The bow I colored with Copics. I colored the border around the candy canes and used deckle edge scissors to trim the edge. This layout was born as a result of a cutting mistake... so my lazy self just went with it... and kept going. The large scallop border edge I made with just using one cutting side of a scallop nestie. Simple little card that came together quickly. Finished card size is an A2.
