EDIT: We've got a slight technical hitch at the moment on the Frilly and Funkie main blog, but if you try later you should be able to leave us your project for the current challenge.
We've come round to the next challenge over at Frilly and Funkie and this time the lovely Rebecca has chosen the theme of 'Light in the darkness' and here's what Rebecca has to say:
Create with 'light' in mind. Think candles, bulbs, lanterns, menorahs and all things that brighten this time of year.
I had to give this one some thought as candle or lantern stamps don't feature in my stamp collection ! The stamp I used is a Katzelkraft stamp that I've had for years. I covered the card with Tarnished Brass and Antique Bronze Metallic Distress Stains and I've spritzed it with water and blended the two colours together, then stamped the candles with black Archival ink. I mounted the candles onto a Nestability die cut that I've blended Wild Honey DI over. The vertical panel is stamped with a Christmas script stamp then I've blended Fired Brick and Barn Door DI over. The background has been stamped with a Stampendous swirl stamp, then I blended DI over it and rubbed embossing ink around the edge and sprinkled gold EP over it.
The poinsettia is made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia and I've embossed it using a Cuttlebug EF. I made the stick pin and used an alcohol ink pen to colour the stick. The ribbon is seam binding and I've dyed it using Fired Brick Distress Stains.
Do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work.
