The Candy Man Can!

It's New Release Day for Sandra Caldwell and I'm showcasing quite the dapper gent.  Meet #1624 Candy Man Hippo.  I wanted to play with a new card design and happened to find fabulous instructions with measurements (in INCHES!) on Beccy's Place blog.  This is my first Bendy card and although I normally would probably change the measurements and play around with it a bit more in the future, the size as is worked for the small amount of the DCWV glitter Sweet Shop DP I had left in my stash.  Hmmm, guess I should have taken a side view of the bends, as the middle bend is not that apparent.  Well, you get the idea. The sentiment was cut from an old Sizzix Halloween die.

Here's a closeup of  #1624 Candy Man Hippo.  He's colored with Copics in candy colors because he's a stylin' guy.  I love his derby, just the kind my grandpa used to wear. (I still have it, although it's not turquoise, LOL)  He's kind of a smooth operator with his winking eye and diamond in his tooth, don'tcha think?
Be sure to check out the design team inspiration from all of the team on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB Group
