Christmas Candy

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Embossing of Any Kind’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I decided to get a head start on some Christmas Cards with this challenge and used the sweet Christmas Candy Fairy image.


My challenge components are the embossed die for my image and some heat embossed Frantage.

I printed my image onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E57, E55, E53; Red - R27, R24, R22; Green - YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91; Gold - Y28, Y26, Y23, Y21; Greys - C7, C5, C3, C1, C00.

Here’s a close up of the image.
