Candy Cane Sketch

This week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is by...well, ME!  It's a pretty simple little sketch...

Here is my card:

I used two new sets, Candy Jar Christmas-Fillers & a sentiment from Candy Jar Christmas.  After seeing this card by Jennifer Holmes during release week, I knew that my candy cane image was destined to be coated with glitter, too!  I could not stop thinking how pretty that card was, and kept going back to look at it!

Sparkly!  I used Copic markers to color it, and then covered it with Martha Stewart coarse clear glitter.  Distressed up some Divine Twine and added a silver bell.  The background paper is from the 5& Dime Collection by October Afternoon.

I can't wait to see what you make with this sketch!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, October 28th.  Be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your card to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Stamps:  Candy Jar Christmas & Candy Jar Christmas Fillers, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream cardstock, October Afternoon's 5& Dime patterned papers
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks, Antique Linen Distress Stain, Copic Markers
Other:  lace, Divine Twine, Martha Stewart coarse clear glitter, mini jingle bell, dimensionals

Love love love your sketch and card. I am definitely going to give this sweet sketch a whirl. Just hope it's before the collection closes. Can I say the glittery candy canes and the lace rimmed jar are so sweet. What an inspiration you and your card are. Marvelous!

Brilliant! I love the jar and candy canes - and the sparkle on them is just wonderful!

I love your sketch and your take on it Kelly. Those sparkly, glittery candy canes are gorgeous. I love that little piece of lace added to the jar, it really makes it look like something I would have seen at my grandma's house during the holidays. (I ended up getting those sets too, so can't wait to receive them).
