Candles to show you today

Hi All
Today I have 2 candles to show you and it was Junie who inspired me to try my candles again, thank you Junie and for your great vidio you did too.

I was having trouble with the tissue paper and colouring the image, so this time I changed the tissue paper  I was using, to the kind you get in the shop what they wrap your clothes up in, the real fine soft stuff and it worked perfectly and shading the image was much easier with this paper.

The first one is done using a LOTV image coloured with Copic and Glitter.


The sceond one is done using a digi image which I printed onto the paper.

I decorated them and wrap them in celo bags that have tiny flowers printed on, cut them to fit and just adding ribbon to finish, I hope you like them.

I ahve entered some challenges and I do hope candles count

Stamp Something - Flowers

Cupcake Craft - Cake or Icecream

Thanks for popping by to see my creations I do appriciate it and have a great day all.
