ABAC for Delicious Doodles

ABAC - or Anything BUT a card is the theme over at Delicious Doodles this week. Things happened in the cubbyhole this week that prevented me from finishing this on time. Hubs was rushed into hossy on thursday early morning. "Suspected stroke", lucky for us all it was one of those mini-strokes, not a really bad one. As he passed the swallow test and no more than physio and time will help, he is, thankfully, back at home. It has left me having to do a few more things for him though until he can do them for himself again, and he will!!!

So....... these were half done before life took over. I've taken a bit of "time out" to get them finished.
A pair of candles, gift wrapped in their own box.

I used the Beach Huts digi, colouring in the image first with pencils before scanning into my pc.
Covering a piece of A4 printer paper with tissue paper after a quick spray of re-positional glue then printing the coloured image (flipping one). The re-positional glue left on the tissue helped keep it on the candle whilst adhering with a heatgun.

Some ribbon, gems and some die-cut shell shapes finish these off.
The box was custom made and has the original image adorning the top. More ribbon, die-cut shell shapes and some dewdrops to finish
That's about it. All wrapped up and ready for their new home.
The other girls in Delicious Doodles' Team A have made some gorgeous items for our inspiration, really worth a look - especially if that old mojo has gone into hiding.
