Good morning! Hope your all keeping warm - this weather is horrid!!! I can cope with the frosty crisp mornings but this horrible wet, damp mornings are not for me! Bring back the summer I say!!
Anyway I'm here today to share something a bit different with you today, last year I attempted a few candles for decorative items at Christmas, well as I still had some here I have given them another go - now the idea of melting the image into the candle and I do not get along - it always goes wrong, so I have decided to make a 'cuff' for my candle!
Its turned out much better than I expected! So pleased with the result! I have used the beautiful Santa Lucia - she has been sat on my desk for ages watching me so I just had to make something with her. She was coloured with copics. I used my nesties to die cut her and also used the scalloped ovals to layer her. I added some Memory Box die cuts around the edges to add some character. I also used my MS punch for the leaves and some flowers from my stash.
The image is held onto the candle but some lace and ribbon that I have stuck with some extra strong glue. You can't really see it but I then added some spots with stickles all over the candle!!
All in all I love how this has turned out - I'm thinking of keeping her for us for Christmas!!!
