Stampin'B's Challenge #38 - Candles

NancyRuth was the hostess for this week's Stampin'B's DT Blog Challenge. I bought this candle/bible stamp last year at a stamp show and have no idea who made it. But I really like the stamp; so, when NancyRuth wanted us to make a card using candles, it was my first choice.

I wanted some white space around my music background, so this card is 5 ½ inches by 8 ½ inches. It’s hard to tell, but the Christmas Music background is stamped in gold pigment ink and embossed. After tearing the edges, I sponged on some Palette Cognac to give it a little distressed look. The candle/bible image is colored with Copic and Prismacolor markers, cut out and popped up with dimensionals. The sentiment, which is part of the Flourishes Christmas Music set, is stamped in Palette Noir Black, cut out with Petite Oval nestabilities and matted in red. I sponged some more of the Cognac ink on the white panel.

All Flourishes images and Palette inks are available at Mark's Finest Papers.

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
