If you would like to hop along with us today and haven’t arrived from Erin's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Ann’s blog.

I am so excited to show you the card I created for today. I absolutely love this stamp! And I am so in love with the earthy colors I used on today's card.

Photobucket

I colored the image using my derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil, skin tones with copic markers.
The sentiment is from an old and retired set from Stampin Up. I used the direct to paper technique on the sentiment and distressed the edges.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:

I have another project to show you too, I have always wanted to try "stamping" on a candle, and I thought this stamp would be perfect for it. I can't believe how easy it actually was to do. If you'd like to try it, here is the tutorial I used from Splitcoaststampers.



After transferring the image onto the candle I used some gold stickles for some sparkle.


And now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping over to Mariska's blog.

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order in case you get lost:


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release!
