Oh It's Morning Already!!

I had to keep working, so thought I would show you a very simple candle.

I decided not to work with the tissue paper on the candle this time. I wanted my friend to be able to actually light the candle and this way she can do that when she is ready and SAVE Tilda and the wrapping to put on a new candle!!

Her favourite colour is purple. I wanted to keep it very light because I wanted it to be used at Christmas and put in my green and red berry wreath. I think it works OK. Other than colouring with Copics and cutting Tilda out with my Scalloped Oval; I simply put the SU 'Almost Amethist' card stock through my crimper and sealed it with Sookwang tape. I did NOT tape it to the candle. It is sticky enough that it stays just where you want it to be! I wrapped a wide silk ribbon around the whole thing and added clear rhinestones down the backside where the join in the paper is and also a few around the ribbon. I did add Crystal Lacquer to each berry and some Dazzling Diamonds on the candle.

My pictures are not perfect as I had to hold the candle so you could see it. Sorry about that! Of course I have encluded a pretty candle stand with this gift!

Here it is:

Hope you enjoy this little candle........
