Christmas Peppermints

For this past week’s challenge at Merry Monday it was an inspiration photo. I did not enter mine in the challenge but the red peppermints stood out to me.


Christmas Peppermints

Here is my take on it.

I used the Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz stamp to stamp the peppermint candies on vellum. I colored them on the back side of the vellum with a white chalk pen which I forgot I bought. I then hand cut them out so it looked like wrappers on the mints.

The background is some paper from a Christmas 6X6 pad.

The crooked sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp and heat embossed with red embossing powder.
