This was the first time I used the foil. I used a laser printer to print the sentiment on the card stock and then ran the card stock and foil through my laminater to create the foiled sentiments.

Now it's your turn to create something for the challenge.

You're Sweet

Time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The challenge is sponsored by

and 

The challenge is "Inspired by your favorite Candy".  There really aren't many candies I don't like, so this was tough for me. Would I choose Reese's peanut butter cups, Good and Plenty, Nerds, Mallo Cups?  I decided to go with 

Because the colors of the candy are only brown and white, I decided to add the blues from the box.

Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11
Eyes-G03, G05
Hair-E53, E43, E57

I added the clear glitter pen to the snowflakes on the embossed velum panel (it doesn't show well in the pictures), the glitter foam snowflakes, the gem on the boot and glitter on the DP (Brrrrrr & LET IT SNOW).
When I started coloring the image I didn't like the way it was turning out (I colored the face and hair 3 times).  Even when I was adding the shading on the paper piecing, I wasn't happy.  After I cut out the coat and hat and added it to the image with the rest of the coloring, I was happily surprised with how it looked. I popped up the image on homemade blue foam squares.

Now it's your turn to get your "Glitter" on. Hope you join us for the challenge.
