Tall Christmas Candle


Challenges

Lili Of The Valley (78) DT - New Beginnings (New Technique)
Stampin For The Weekend (53) - Christmas
I Love Promarkers (46) - Anything Goes
Digi Doodle Shop (39) - Anything Goes

Here we are back again after the Christmas break for a new challenge from Lili Of The Valley. I hope you have all had a good Christmas and are now raring to go again and eager to use all your new stash. This time the challenge is 'New Beginnings' so we would like to see projects that are for a new baby, wedding, new home, using new stash etc, or like me, trying a new technique. We are kindly being sponsored by LOTV who are donating a £10.00 voucher to spend in their webshop.

As I said, I have tried a new technique as I have never tried to stamp on a candle before. I have so often admired the ones I have seen done but never had the courage to try it myself, for fear of setting the house on fire! Well, I didn't set the house on fire, but I had just fallen and cracked my head on the edge of a door about half an hour before doing the candle. Could explain the rotten photography - but hey! the door is still in one piece ha! ha! I used Promarkers to colour the images and on reflection I will use darker colours next time I have a go as the image has come out a bit too pale. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
