LOTV - Christmas Candle

Good morning everyone,

I hope you had a good week and are enjoying your weekend. It is still hot here, too hot for me, even though we have had some rain and thunderstorms.  I am really struggling with my crafty mojo at the moment, I think it is a mixture of the heat and tiredness, but I am on count down now, two and a half days left until the summer holidays - yay! 

This morning we have a new colour challenge at the Ribbon Girls and this month the colour is  Aqua. I took a long time deciding which image to colour and which medium to use, but eventually decided on my Spectrum Noir Pencils. She is oldie LOTV image called 'Christmas Candle' which I have stamped onto Kraft card.  I am very new to colouring on Kraft card, but quite enjoying it.  I have gone a bit mad with the Frantage and sprinkled it on the die cuts and the corrugated card tucked behind the image. Peeping out from the top is some gorgeous cheesecloth. The Christmas papers are by Maja.The beautiful flowers, ribbon, cheesecloth, lace , bakers twine, jingle bells and lush diamante snowflake are all from the Ribbon Girls. Links to the products are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken to the product.
