Christmas Candles

I decided to decorate a couple of candles this week which I have now sent to a dear friend, using the Tall Conifer, Snowflake, Leafy and Christmas Day stamps from 100 Proof Press.
I added the stamped images to my candles using StazOn timber brown, adding images around my candles.
For added dimension and interest I added red gems to my snowflakes for a little sparkle.
I added December 25 and red Bakers Twine to the top of each candle, the pop of red really adds to that seasonal feel. I also added wooden baubles to the top of each candle which I coloured with fired brick Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
