Candy Cane Christmas

Candy Cane Christmas 04156
A big congrats to Karren, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS389)! Such a fabulous gallery she has! Lots I want to case, but I was drawn to this really cute card. I kept the Christmas theme and colors, but I don’t have anything like those cute little Christmas kitties, so I used different images, an oval instead of a square & a grid die instead of the scallops & twine & moved the greeting. 

I’ve always loved this candy cane image & for a quite a while I’ve wanted to try the “no line”  technique. Well, it’s harder than I imagined. I stamped the image w/ gray ink (so it wouldn’t really show) then carefully colored it with Copics. I definitely need more practice with this technique, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I added a white grid die cut w/ a red background and a fussy cut holly image to finish it. Pretty CAS. Here are the Copics I used.
