Seasons Greetings!!!!

Merry Christmas to you all. I hope Christmas 2016 finds you happy, healthy and ready to create!
At Crafts Galore Encore we have a new challenge for you. Sponsored by Sherri Baldi the winner will receive the 3 digi stamps used by the DT

I decided to use the middle image and printed it on to tissue paper and coloured it with copics, Neocolor crayons and polychromos. I then placed it around a pillar candle securing it with a band of grease proof paper with the excess paper creating a hand hold for me. I then used a heat gun to gently heat the candle , causing it to, "Swallow", the tissue paper. I then added Ranger enamels and some Stickles glue.
To create the holder I designed a candle holder which I cut out of card on my Cameo. I then used texture paste and glitter to "ice", the candle holder and added some gorgeous toadstools which I bought in a new shop in Chelmsford called, "Flying Tiger" (from Copenhagen).

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas,
Denyse x
