Candy jars

I love love love this image from Impression Obsession's summer release! It has so many coloring possibilities, and it just brings back fond childhood memories. I used to love those stick candies, and all the colors and combinations and flavors. Fun stuff. :)

I colored in the scene with Prismacolor pencils, choosing colors to match the background paper (Basic Grey). I pieced cold laminate over the jars, so they are shiny and dimensional - I guess that doesn't show in the picture. The rock candy is covered with Diamond Dust - that's fun to work with - it's finely crushed glass and very very sparkly. The stuff I have is made by Floracraft, and comes in a 3 oz. tub that looks like it will last for-e-ver.

Speaking of the new release, you can view the supplement now! Stamps will be available online soon.
