CCT: Candy cane sweeties

CCT theme this week is 'candy corn' but it doesn't have to be Halloween themed, any sweet/candy will do. So I chose to use Henry with his cutiepie sitting on a candycane.
It's a bit busy with all that colour and pattern but I like it. It's got real dimension to it and looks better IRL as the image is raised on 3d foam but it looks flat in photo and there's lots of shimmer and texture to it with the different felt & paper flowers, embossing etc. Done my usual loopsided/mishmash layout can't help it!
Here's a close up of the cute couple, I just adore these Henry stamps and I think the sentiment is perfect for them too.


  • Stamps: Henry mouse & sentiment both WoJ, the heart behind them is an Alota stamp which I stamped using masking technique.
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Paper: BG 'Eskimo kisses'
  • Tools: MS loopy border and corner punch. MS frond leave punch. Woodware Sakura flower punch. MS snowflake punch. Cuttlebug snowdots embossing folder
  • Others: homemade shimmer spray (perfect pearl powder & water in a mini mister spray bottle), pearl brads, pink heart gem in centre of flower
