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!!!!!!
