Sweet Treats

Hi there 🙂 When I saw this image from Ching-Chou Kuik, I just knew I had to have it!! I colored up the simplified version of Sweet Candy with my Copics, using a contemporary color palette. I added a few highlights with a white Posca, a gold glitter pen, and some Wink of Stella, then cut it out with a die, leaving the bottom portion to fussy cut.

I selected some coordinating pink, mint green and gold papers to design the card with. With the gold, I matted the image, and also die cut a bow and the background for the sentiment. I used an assortment of candy dies, and inlaid them with contrasting colors, before arranging them with the bow, and adding the sentiment. A few pretty pink and gold gems finish this card off perfectly.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
