Candy Corn and Copic Stripes

Fun technique at Papertrey's Make It Monday #27 Custom Striped Copic Ribbon.

Nichole made a video tutorial you can check out.

Here's my card.

It's for my brother-in-law who's a gamer.

His birthday is in October.

I don't know why, but I LOVE the look of candy corn stripes!!!

I think they are DARLING.

But, to tone down the DARLING, 

I used Papertrey's Grunge Me and Game On.

I used a Sharpie yellow and Copic YR04 chrome orange to make the stripes on the ribbon and candy corn. 
The white stripe was already there.  I flipped over a white patterned grosgrain ribbon and used the blank side.  I don't know when I'll ever use the patterned side.  I'm not sure what even drew me to that floral pattern!

I used Versamark to stamp the Game On controller and sentiment, and embossed with black ink.

The spiral cord connecting the two controllers is a piece of plastic black coil I usually use for binding notebooks.  

I don't throw anything away..this was a leftover scrap.

My cutie candy corns are triangles I shaped from white card stock and rounded out.

I used a Copics 110 special black marker to edge them.

The Grunge Me splatters are inked with Versamark and embossed in white.

Thanks for peeking in....give the technique a try! ;)
