Candy Cane Uru

Now most of you know that if you want to find a CAS card, then you can usually find one or two here, I love clean and simple cards and always have done.  I think you would classify my style as straightforward so when I came across a challenge that was new to me called ADDICTED TO CAS I signed up right away.

The current challenge launched yesterday with the Code Word of CANDY.  It's not often I know immediately what I'm going to do for a challenge without any humming and hahhing and faffing about but for this one I went straight to the stamp I had in mind.


I love these Norma Fickel gnomes from Whiff of Joy - this one is Uru and Candy Cane
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Mowed Lawn, Iced Spruce, Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany
Tattered Rose, Weathered Wood
Teamed with a matting layer of Dovecrafts Back To Basics Christmas paper
and a sentiment from Hero Arts

I think I must have picked up a "Friday night" pad of Bristol Board at some point as I am noticing some of the pages are not as easy to paint on - the ink is soaking straight in before I can blend, which is a nuisance but it is too expensive to abandon!


Hugs, Sxx

Nice one Squirrel. I love these gnome images too and have three. the one with a tree, astride a reindeer and one with a drum.
