Christmas Candy Cane



It was fun creating a card using Red, White and Blue.  The candy cane is from Magnolia Stamps.  After coloring with copics, I painted the candy cane with Hologram Extreme Glitter paint.  It goes right over the copics and gives a great sparkly look.  Best part is that it dries super fast (depending on how much you use, it dries in under 5 minutes).  The ribbon was colored with blue copics and then painted with Turquoise Extreme Glitter paint.  I was surprised that the paint enhanced the blue copics and didn't just cover it up.  

This is for the current challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  Would love for you to join us. What color would you pair up with red and white?
