Christmas Candle Tilda

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a good week and are having a lovely weekend! The Christmas tree is up and we are almost ready for the big day, just the wrapping left to do. Last year was so stressful that I was determined to be organised this year. I have been making Christmas cards for months now and never tire of making them, in fact I think I will miss it lol. We have been looking after Kyra this weekend and it has been so much fun. I can't believe she is already 6 months old and growing so fast.

Today is our last challenge of the year for Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia, but we will back in the new year.  Our challenge this time is of course 'Christmas'.

I have coloured up the very beautiful Christmas Candle Tilda in non traditional colours using Copics and Prisma pencils. She has been mounted onto a Noor Design Oval die. Tucked behind the image I've placed some white corrugated card which I've sprinkled some Pink Shabby Chic Frantage over and tucked a paper doily behind it. The snowflake banner is a La La Land die and I've covered it with oodles of Glamour Dust. The corner I have made from Air Dry Clay using a silicone mould which I bought from Etsy and has been painted with Gesso. The pink pearl string is from my stash. The branches are also a Noor Design die, they aren't currently in Tracy's shop, but I know she will order it for you if you want it.  The flowers are from my stash and I've sprinkled some Twinklets (Diamond Dust) over them, I love this effect. I painted the fir cones with Gesso and the snowballs I bought from a Craft fair, I think It was from Anna Marie crafts. The lace and Silky Crush ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl.

Copics list:
Skin: E11, 21, 00, 000, 0000, R21
Hair: E29, 27, 53, 50

  2. WOW, another beauty Gina! Love everything about it, especially that Snowflake banner! Everything just fits together perfectly, but then it always does with your cards.

    I am so pleased to hear you are super organised this year for Christmas. Our tree is not up yet, but hopefully this will happen in the week. I too love making Christmas cards. We should make a pact that we make at least one per month through the year! I have just stepped down from two Christmas Challenges so I really must make the effort to keep it up. Good luck tonight!
