Class project and some videos

I had a lovely day yesterday meeting up with old friends, and we got to craft too.  I took a little class and this is what we did.

I had not decorated a candle in yonks so when the girls asked if I would do a class with them I was thrilled to get to play again Smile 

I coloured Angelic Candle from Lili of the Valley with copics stamped on to tissue paper.  After I had heated the image into the candle I did my usual glitter treatment – Diamond Stickles on the wings and stars (loving this colour at the mo).  The 15mm roses from Wild Orchid Crafts also got the stickles treatment

The paper that I used on the box (made from a sheet of A3 card and A4 card) is from Craft Creations.  Had it for a few years now, it was one of those that were for stroking only lol.  But I loved the rich, vintagey look to the paper so it got cut into.  The die cut border is from a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis set.  The green satin ribbon, hybrid tea rose, cherry blossoms, aster daisies, holly leaves and berries are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps

I also have a couple of new videos up on my Video Tutorials page if you want to take a peek

Have a brilliant week, I am hoping to get the last of my Christmas shopping done and I may even get the Christmas tree up on the weekend Surprised smile

  36. Hi Bev~

    You have made two fabulous projects here, Bev...plus the videos! You have been a busy lady! I wish you gave your classes here in the US. But, you do share so much through those amazing videos. These are both amazing. I really love the boxes...but, I never knew you could add glitter to a candle. I know...we aren't lighting it, so we can pretty much do anything to it, right?

    Thank you so much for sharing more of yourself and your knowledge. Stay warm...sorry to hear the storm in the background!

    He IS Able!

  48. Oh Bev, both the candle and the box are just stunning. I have yet to ink up my little angels that I bought at NEC. I decorated 2 candles last year for the first time and enjoyed it so much. I really must try it again some time.
