Good Morning everyone! This cute little image is called Christmas Candle and it's from Lili of the Valley stamps out of England. A similar layout was on the their inspiration blog a couple of days ago and I went with the basic concept. Instead of flowers I used the tree die cut from Marianne designs.
I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image on to Blend It - Express paper. It has been colored with Copics. The circle sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley.
The base card is white card stock from Bazzill and is 5 3/4 inches square. Next came a green Bazzill card stock and it is 5 5/8 inches square. Next came a 5 1/2 inch square piece of designer paper from Echo Park. I then used Labels 8 Nestability on the backside of a piece of dotted BoBunny card stock. The lace and rhinestones are from my stash.
I don't remember all the specific Copic markers I used as this sweet image was colored several weeks ago. I do remember to darken the red (probably R35), I did a wash of W5 on top of the red and then put the red on top of the W5.
