All That Scraps Challenge

 

 

And, of course, Wednesday also means a new challenge at All That Scraps.   This week Lesa challenged us to creat some type of Fall decoration.    This was my first attempt at rubber stamping on a candle!    It’s definitely much easier than you would think!    I followed this very helpful tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers.   And, believe me – if I can do it … anyone can!    What a great idea with the upcoming holidays . . . hmmmmmmmm.  

I used the C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies Fall Scene, colored with Copics for my candle.   Unfortunately, when coloring on the tissue paper, it’s a little hard to get much shading since the ink really soaks in quickly.     

I also wanted to share the super simple little “doily”  for under the candle that I made using the largest die from the new Spellbinders Nestabilities  Beaded Circles Decorative Elements  dies . . .

 

 

It turned out to be the perfect size to match my candle!   I was thinking some silver or gold metallic cardstock would be pretty for a Christmas candle, or some wool felt would be nice too.    Eeeek … guess Santa will be busy making LOTS of candles this year!   LOL

So be sure to hop over to the All That Scraps Challenge blog  to see some awesome Fall themed decorations from the always amazing Design Team.

Thanks for visiting today!
