Happy Harvest: Fall candle


Are you loving Tracy’s first set, Happy Harvest?  I know I am!  And, it’s giving me a chance to work on my coloring skills a bit.  This little table decoration would be great as a Thanksgiving place setting gift or just a little neighbor gift (well, not for MY neighbors but maybe for yours!).  I used my oval Nesties and sponged the edge of the ivory cs with some Palette Moulin Rouge.  This is also the ink I used to stamp the greeting.

I stamped the pumpkin with Palette Cognac, which is a great color if Burnt Umber is just a little too dark.  I’ve been using Cognac more and more.  I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol and cut it out so I could pop it up.  The flame has a little touch of Orange Stickles.  I wrapped the candle with a piece of 3/8” ivory satin and held it in place with a few pieces of i {stick} papers.

I think it’s pretty elegant.  I’m debating whether to keep it or give it away!  Haha!

Thanks for stopping in today!

Kate this is fabulous! I would have never thought to use pink with this. And cognac, either. Going to have to try that next!

Very pretty Kate!
It is the perfect little gift to have a few of incase someone unexpected stops by during the Holidays or as a little hostess gift! Everyone needs candles and especially one that is already decorated for the Holidays.

Thank you for sharing!
Have a great weekend!

I've got to finish my order up so I make sure to get one of these sets before they are all gone! :)
I'll probably need to get some beautiful ribbon as well!!LOL
