Christmas Favorite Candy Canes

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 307. My color combo is Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 297 - Perfect Breeze Pizzazz. My base is my 2nd and for sure final attempt at Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 299 - W.I.S.H.. I tried again after telling myself not to but now I have learned my lesson. At least most of it is covered up and I used my Copic Air Brush System to do the fill in this time. LOL.
My candy cane image is from a digital set just released from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE called Christmas Favorites II. I used GIMP to flip the candy cane and cross them, printed 2 images then colored and cut the top layered cane out of the 2nd print and popped it up. I punched holes on both side to run my pear pizzazz ribbon through and tied it around them both. I cut and embossed my focal panel with Nesties Rectangle then used YG93 to trim around the inside edge and softened it with the colorless blender. After attaching all the layers I covered the colored sections of the images with purple and blue stickles.
I love Christmas candy canes, just not real fond of the peppermint ones.
Hope you like it, now off to work
