Candlelight

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday - where we get to make Christmas cards all year round!  This week, Sue has challenged us to use candles and flowers on our Christmas card.


I have to admit to struggling with this challenge as I don't really have many Christmas stamps with candles and flowers and I didn't feel like doing any punch art.  I dug into the deep dark recesses of my Christmas stamps and found a set that features a candle and holly.  So for today's challenge, I'm declaring that holly is a flower :)


I stamped the candle onto some X-press It cardstock and colored it very quickly with Copics.  I went over the whole image in Wink of Stella so it has a lovely shimmer IRL.  I outlined the image in B0000 and B000 pens and then decided to use that as my accent color.   So I cut a strip of Audrey Blue cardstock for the left hand side.  

The sentiment comes from a Verve set called Christmas Joy.



Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Yuletide Greetings (CTMH), Christmas Joy (Verve)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  White, X-press It, Audrey Blue (SSS)
Accessories:  Copics, Wink of Stella
