About Me

My 2014 resolutions are (1) to not always take the lazy 'Copic' option, and instead reach for the paintbrush and Distress Ink reinkers, and (2) to use what stash I have and not buy more (hmm, it's probably best if you don't ask me how successful that was!). I love your feedback on my creations and I read every message, so please leave a comment, or use my sidebar 'chatbox' widget to let me know you've visited.

Candy Stripes

The theme today at Crafty Little Fairies is Candy Stripes.  Well, I'll admit that I'm not a huge stripe fan, but I do quite like these cute little candy stripes in red and white.  I've got stripy bakers twine, and also red and white striped candy on my image, as well as some stripy clothing on my little girlie elf.

I'm on C&S duty again today, I quite like this style, it's so quick to assemble! :0)  I tied glassy beads onto the ends of my bakers twine and let them dangle onto the card.  The sentiment is typed in a new font that I have called "Wendy Medium".
