My first candle and 4 challenges
well you've guessed it another 25th wedding anniversary project! ( I think this will be my card and gift) This is my first attempt at a candle it went not too bad, but I think I overheated it slightly. The thing I found the hardest was to embellish it once the image had gone on. (the candle is straight in real life, it just lops over in the picture..(LOL).. been having real problems with the whole photography thing this morning! I have used a stamp from "Le Blanche" its been coloured with whisper pens, and once it was heat set I added some stickles, and then decorated it with some ribbons and flowers from my box of bits and bobs so sorry I have no idea where I got them from. and I am going to enter this into Stamping for the weekend http://stampinfortheweekend.blogspot.com/ as the challenge this week is to alter it.
The card... I have used the sketch from Delicious Diva Challenges http://deliciousdivachallenges.blogspot.com/
I have used 3 brads again from "Le Blance" one flower (sorry don't know where that's from) and paper from "crafty bits" and that fits the recipe over at Pink Elephant http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/
and finally the challenge over at One Stop Craft http://onestopcraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ is to use swirls and pearls. On both projects the flower that I have used as little pearls for the stamen. On the candle I have made swirls using adhesive stones, and on the card there are some peeloff swirls just going round the corner of the image.
Just as a quick P.S ordered the TSV from QVC UK (WRMK magnetic cutting mat, with various cutting tools!) so now I will have a means to make circles! whoo hoo!! it means more challenges will be in my grasp!.... guess the order of all these cards has come in handy!
