Caroling Trio Candle

This is my mid way challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Anything Goes'.  I decided to crack on with some Christmas gifts, this candle is for Bobby's Teacher.  I love doing candles, and always do a matching gift box to finish it off with.

For the candle I stamped Penny Black's Caroling Trio (40-007) and coloured it with Spectrum Noirs, then found a Holly stamp and did a border to go round the top of the candle.  Cut a strip of card and used a scalloped border punch on it, then went mad and coated it in Glamour dust.

I also added a sentiment to the back of the candle, that seems to make it look more finished off.

Then for the gift box I stamped out another Caroling Trio image and cut two of the mice out to use as embellishments.  I put in an acetate window to the front and the back, and a layered Poinsettia on the lid.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love, Flonz Crafts & Classy Crafts. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Are you wanting some inspiration, pop on over to the challenge blog and then you can see all the wonderful creations from the rest of the talented team.

Happy crafting

I've probably said it before Tracy, but you really do such a fabulous job with candles and they are always presented so beautifully in their individualised boxes.
