FFC14 - Candy Cane


Time for a new Festive Friday challenge! This time it's an element challenge and the element is Candy Cane!

Candy Cane element



To create my big candy cane (so big you can only see a small part of it!), I cut one inch strips of MASK IT and placed them one inch apart. It was actually quite easy to make sure the stripes were parallel - I always stamp on a Stampin' Up pad of grid paper and so I just used repositionable tape to place my panel on the grid lines at a slight angle, and then use the grid lines to place the masks straight across the 'not-straight' panel.

Finally, I sponged in the remaining portions in Real Red, let it dry and stamped my favourite Stampabilities Merry Christmas.

I hope you'll come and play along with us - it's August now, my friends - November (the time when you'll panic if you haven't started your Christmas cards) is not that far away any more!
