Make It Colourful - Pleats and Folds


This week at Make it Colourful it's all about adding pleats and folds. Our sponsor this week is Magnolia-Licious so I've used a Magnolia Christmas sentiment. I've also used Make it Crafty's Sitting Annalise digi stamp and popped her on some pleated and folded ribbon candy. The candy image came from one of my favourite decorative painting designers - Debbie Mitchell of Cozy Cubby fame. I have several of her gorgeous patterns and books from when I painted and always loved her ribbon candy - I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

I've always found it fascinating to make something 2D look 3D by adding highlights and shadows with colour. I know there are some other AMAZING ideas for this challenge from the other MiC DT gals too - so check them out on our blog HERE. I've also used some Make it Crafty Flower Leaf Swirls lasercuts to add some sparkle.
