Study in red!

Woo Hoo!, this week's OLW challenge is up, and it's a goodie!  Design a card using only white and red or cream and red.  Here's what I came up with:


Who would of thought that it would work? Well, Susan obviously, and now I'm a convert.

The card was slightly fiddly to make, with all the masking necessary to keep the red areas cleanly defined.  I stamped the dotted lines first, masked of the area outside the candy stripe and then randomly stamped the candy - a quick sentiment and I was done.

All the supplies for this card are from Amuse Studio

stamps: candy cane wishes, naughty or nice, tini time
paper: sugar
ink: cranberry

Very nice! I know what you mean about the masking - I was considering a similar design but did not have the patience for all the masking it would have needed. But your effort was well worth it; this is a lovely card.
