3d Flowers

This is my first attempt at 3d flowers.
Both were cut using the sizzixs eclips, flowers cartridge.

The poinsettia was glued with tacky glue and shaped using tweezers.
And the edges were glittered with white fine glitter. 


The blue flower was cut and the edges distressed using distressing ink.

 A circle of lace was added to the middle.

And it was all held together using a pearl brad.

First Christmas Candle

This is my first attempt at putting an image onto a candle.
I must say, that I am very pleased with it, though in future, I need to experiment with a low heat setting to prevent the candle from melting.

An image on each side, both out of the LOTV christmas 2010 range.

I think I may add some glitter and faux snow before I send it.
The candle, is scented with clean linen and smells lovely.
Both images were stamped onto one sheet of tissue and coloured with pro markers.
They were then heat set into the candle.

Autumn leaves

Todays card was made for the inspiration challenge over on Docrafts.
It is Tilda rolling in the leaves and kicking them everywhere.

Tilda is coloured with promarkers, but I have used chalks for the background and the leaves.
The leaves where cut from the Flowers Phrases card on the Sizzix Eclips.

The leaves are shaped and stand out, with a light shimmer on them to look like frost.

The sentiment is in gold to match the leaf colours and I have used ribbon and lace to compliment the brown shade.
