Catch the bug - ABC -candle cover

November 18- 2013
 
Hello to Catch the bug ABC - anything but a card Monday.. I made a votive candle cover.
 

I had a strip of vellum from another project left over so I thought ok this is good, it's not a tag or book mark but an actual different project than I've done in the past. This is good and could make nice present if need be.


I found an old green glass votive holder and it was scratched up and looking terrible so thought great this would be a good piece to cover and still be useful. I am loving the way it came out and the green from the glass gives a nice look to the vellum.  I took the SU whimsy wheel and versa mark and rolled it on the vellum and applied white embossing powder, heated it and then scallop die cut the top with a su punch. taped the back side seam with vellum tape.  Found this darling snowman digi warm wishes and lightly colored it and added some wink of stella glitter to it and taped it to the vellum. I love this project.  Of course it I were to give these out I would buy a nice votive holder and not use this scratched up one. But this is mine and unless you removed the vellum you'd never know.. LOL

Pretty altered item using vellum & snowman image. Like how you put this together. Definitely would make a wonderful gift but I'd be tempted to keep it for myself. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch190 Anything Goes.

What a stunning gift this would make Billie .....The votive candle flickering in its holder would really show the beautiful work you have put into the vellum surround and who could fail to be charmed by that delightful image and warm words. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
