A christmas candle

Hi there - hope you are well my lovely friends and followers - just wanted to show you a candle that I've made using the technique given here at split coast stampers - its so easy - you really must have a go!


The image is of course from Willow designs and I coloured in promarkers. I didn't have any waxed paper but I used baking parchment and it was fine.

I'd like to enter my candle into the following challenges:

panpasteluk: Gift time
2 sisters CB2sisterschallengeblog: Christmas sparkle
LMMlittlemissmuffetchallenges: Gifts
stotallypapercrafts: anything christmas but a card
Crafty Catz:craftycatzweeklychallenge Upcycle
Willow sketchie themewillowsketchiechallenge: Merry Christmas
totallystampalicious: Anything but a card.

It really is easy - do have a go! And thanks for dropping by.

Hugs rachel xx
