Magnolia Ink Contest Entry

Today I am sharing the other creation that I sent to Sweden to enter the Magnolia Ink competition to be on the cover of the current issue. I used Magnolia papers throughout. This was the only stamp I had that fit the Chocolate/Candy theme in any way.

I coloured the peppermint cane with copics and then added glossy accents to it so that it looked more realistic.

You can see just how delicious and glossy it looks in the photo above!

I wanted some form of candy embellishments and so came up with the idea of covering buttons with some celophane wrapping so that they looked like little sweets! The lace die cut is Tilda's Lace doohickey.

The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy, stamped with Victorian Velvet distress ink and I added a lace bow and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I added a selection of flowers from my stash along with some doohickey die leaves. The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the pearl brad is from Whiff of Joy.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
