More for Tellen's Place

Marathon blogging session today methinks
Next up is a card and candle set made using Tellen's Place's Santa Sleigh and Teddy.
I did ask Terry if I could use the images for this kind of project and has been pointed out before in CDAC by Helen Laurence of Ellephantastic - some digi company's Angel Policies do prohibit this - so be aware.
That said, this is the project for this week using Helen's technique.

Card with matching candle.
The image on the candle was traced onto tissue paper and coloured with promarkers and gel pens. Cut out close to the lines, and using a glue stick, stuck to the candle. Then with greaseproof paper wraped round the candle to protect hands and aid even heat distribution, use a heat gun to melt the candle just enough for the wax to grab the image all over.
I then attached some sequins round the top and ribbon to match the card.
The image was then used to make the card. Again coloured in using promarkers and gel pens. I attached it to some concertina'd card stock which in turn was stuck to some gold miri. This was attached to a lace effect DP that a couple of embossed white panels had been stuck to. Matching ribbon to candle and 3 sequins.
A piece of red card with the sentiment embossed in gold to finish.

I am entering this into the challenge over at Stamps R Us where anything goes
