Candles, Candles, Candles

I have a meeting tomorrow with fellow demonstrators and we are having our annual holiday party & pot luck. We always do a stamped gift exchange. So, this is what I made.

I used A Cardinal Christmas & Snowburst stamp sets. I used Always Artichoke (it looks more like Old Olive on the candles), Real Red & Basic Black Classic Ink Pads. I colored the Cardinal with SU Markers: Real Red, Always Artichoke, More Mustard & Close to Cocoa.

I put some organdy ribbon on each of the candles to dress them up a little. Then I put them onto a charger plate & added some cinnamon smelling potpourri.

After I was done with this project, my son asked if we could make a "blue bird". As you may have read in previous posts, blue is his favorite color. So I tried it out. I colored the bird with Pacific Point Reinker & a blender pen, More Mustard on the beak & feet. The I used Mellow Moss & Always Artichoke on the leaves, Real Red on the berries & Close to Cocoa on the branches. He loved it. We will be giving it to his teacher for part of her gift.
Thanks for looking today!!
