STS #7

I finally had a chance to do a little crafting yesterday and decided to get back in the groove with a sketch challenge.  Seize the Sketch has this one to work from and it had me stumped for a little while. Maybe that's why I'm hurrying to make the deadline.

I didn't think through my card so there were things I was going to do to it and forgot until it was all stuck together.  It still turned out okay, just not what I was thinking.

I used printed paper instead of adding a sentiment.   The candles, cut from a PTI die, are embossed with the Distressed Stripes embossing folder, but once I added the Glossy Accents, the embossing sort of disappeared.  I was going for a waxy look and failed.  :(  I also added Glossy Accents and glitter to the flames.

Now that my work surface is a mess, maybe it will inspire me to get some more cards done.  I know that doesn't sound logical, but I'm hoping what I have out will spark something for another card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope your creativity soars this week.


  1. Great interpretation of the sketch. I like your candles, and it was a super idea to use paper with a sentiment as part of the design.

  2. Your candles totally look like wax when I click on them to enlarge them on my monitor, Bobby! And I love how you used the printed paper as your sediment ~ it conveys your message and it's an opportunity to use that patterned paper! I also like that you "hoped the mess would 'spark' more creativity" right after your were talking about the candle flames! Good one!! Hugs, Darnell
