The weekend is here and the kids are driving me crazy to put the Christmas Decs up as our neighbour has been putting hers up this week. I am trying to fob them off till next week but not sure how long I will hold off for especially as hubby wants them up too lol!!!
Anyway today we see a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week the theme is
We are very lucky this week to be sponsered by Sylvia Zet at
Sylvia was also very generous and gave the DT a choice of image to work with. I chose the gorgeous Winter Fairy which you can find HERE, isn't she just so sweet.
So this week instead of a card I decided to make a little tea light holder which I found a fab tutorial for HERE. I then realised that I wouldn't be able to put a proper tea light in obviously cause its made of card!!, so a trip to my local Hobbycraft and I found some fabby little LED candle shaped tea lights perfect!!
Basically the box itself is 10cm square with 1.5cm tabs on and 2 x 10cm pieces of card for the base - 1 on the inside and 1 on the outside. I die cut an aperture out of each side and placed some acetate embossed with a swirly embossing folder in it. The flowers were made with my new Marrianne poinsetta die and I edged them with Stickles to make them sparkle. Then added a couple of Sizzix Swirls behind them. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I have added Stickles to her wings and white Flowersoft to the trim on her coat and boots to give them a bit of texture. I have been wanting to do a WOW (white on white) creation for ages now so took the opportunity with this and have to say am very pleased with how it came out and it looks much better and sparkly IRL.
Hair/Robin - Henna, Cinnamon, Tan
Face - Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin
Coat/Boots - China Blue, Denim Blue, Pastel Blue - Rose Pink, Blossom
Holly - Berry Red, Cardinal - Olive Green, Pear Green
And a piccy of it in the dark with the candle lit (turned on lol!!!!)
