Hope

This is my second post of the day. For the Decorate to Celebrate post, click HERE.


Today I have a home decor project to share with you. I started with a piece of pink vellum and adhered tulle and sequin ribbon. I then cut two Spellbinders A Gilded Life Rose Medallion Dies in pink vellum and one in Spellbinders Media Mixage Iridescent Translucents in pearl and attached it to the candle.



The pendant is a Spellbinders A Gilded Life Love Wings and I just snipped off the top ring. I used a technique on the background that I saw on a blog and thought it looked awesome, but now I can't remember where I saw it. So I would love to give credit to whoever came up with the idea. I stamped it with Versamark and then heat embossed it with Stampendous Vintage Embossing Powder. I used a Spellbinders A Gilded Life Heart Die to cut another piece of Media Mixage Iridescent Translucents. Hope is from JustRite Stamps Grateful Hearts Vintage Labels 2, and it was heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The heart was then applied to the pendant with Glossy Accents, which were also added to the wings and crown. Sugar Coating was added to the wings and crown while the Glossy Accents was still wet.


I am entering this in the following challenges:


  1. Spellbinders A Gilded Life Contest
  2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
  3. DL.Art - August Linky
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Pretty decor for a candle.... This would have to be only for showcasing, I could see this been lighted up, LOL!

My sweetest friend, your candle is a work of art! (And heart!) The colors are so beautiful and I cannot get over your stunning uses of pendants and such. This one is extraordinary! Your detailing is always top-notch, which I love about you. The satiny bow is the perfect finishing touch. I hope your calendar is clear because there is zero chance of you not winning this content! :o) Stunning, my dear Lisa! I hope you have a happy and sparkly day. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
