One More Candle


Another card for Gallery Idol Open Auditions! I remember seeing new stamp recently of these tall candles (i can't remember were i saw it or the company who made it!) but i thinking of it when i was looking at my selection of washi tape. And it turns out i have several colors with poka dots! The poka dots make it really easy to cut the tape into long straight strips!!

So that's what i did, started cutting long strips out of my poka dot washi tape and added them to my card base. I staggered the height and width of the washi tape.

No candle is complete with out a flame, i don;t have any candle stamps that would go with these (size wise), so i had to make my own!! I drew several with a fine tip pen (and a lot of duds!! hehe!!). I colored them in with distress markers and then cut them out. I added them to each candle washi, tucking them behind the washi tape with a tiny dot of liquid glue to make sure they stayed put!!

Next i found a double ended banner from my extra embellishment dish and stamped the sentiment What's one more candle? I also added black rhinestones at each end. I added the banner to my card base with foam dots.
