Robin in Wax

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

Challenge #189

Theme 'Holidays'


The Prize this week is the full pack of brand new images issued by our creators especially for this challenge 

Now,we know that there can only be one winner but here at OSAAT we do like to spread some 'love' to fellow Card Crafters so, for a limited period this awesome 'Holiday Themed' pack will be FREE to anyone who spends $10 in the Stitchy Bear Shop.

For my submission this week I decided to create a candle, I have not made one for a while:) I used the Coosty Creations Robin Digital Stamp and Paper Pack which is one of the items you get in the collaboration selection.  The digi was coloured digitally and superimposd onto the backing paper with a frame made from a second paper from the digi pack, a sentiment was then added.  I then printed on tissue paper and adhered to the candle using a heat gun.   For the base I used Lea'bilities Wreath For All Seasons using the wreath and holly leaves.  Each leaf was attached with silicone glue so I could place them at different angles and to finish off I added red stickles to represent the holly berries.
