More Christmas candles
Well its and off and running kind of day....going for a walk with the puppy as soon as I get a bit more daylight, then I have my encaustic wax class, a stop at the post office and may be an hour or so in the craft room before getting my pre-night shift nap....then off to work. Boy was this a short 2 days off!!! Ah well the paycheck will have a bit of something extra thanks to the extra shift.....
I had several hours in the craft room yesterday and this is one I finished off. I had colored the image a week or so ago and that always makes it quicker to put a card together.
I did this one for the current challenge over at Flourishes which is to 'Let it shine' by using a light source. Check out the challenge here - www.flourishes.org/blog/
I used the Christmas candles set from Flourishes again - one of my favorites and also went with the teal, turquoise and red colors again. I colored the main image with prismacolor pencils (blended the background with OMS).
I embossed the phrase - also from Flourishes but can't remember which set - in blue/turquoise and used the teal pearl drops from Viva décor again too. I used a sheer gold ribbon and red ribbed ribbon and a very pretty red lace ribbon too, and 2 rhinestone frames for the main panels.
All for this am - time to get a move on.....
