Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #14: Candles

We are on Week 2 of  Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge.  We have some super lush colours for you. These elegant colours will work for any occasion. Here's reminder of the swatch:

You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you keep to the colours from the colour swatch. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display winner's badge on their blog.


Surprise ... surprise ... I made a Christmas card. These colours are so rich and regal which reminded me of a stained glass window in our parish Church. And before long I was taking a trip down Christmas avenue... again! For the background, I blended Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Mowed Lawn, Dusty Concord, Seedless PreservesMilled Lavender and a touch of Picked Raspberry to brighten the mix. Then I heat embossed the stars from the new Sparkling Trees A5 sheet using WOW Silver EP. Next, satin purple ribbon tied in a bow and tiny pale purple bling to finish.


Now for the focal image - the stained glass window. And guess what? Chocolate Baroque has the perfect stamp! It's from the Stained Glass Christmas A5 sheet. I stamped the image with VersaFine Smokey Grey and coloured it with Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils. Then I layered and mounted that piece onto some foam tape. Finally, a glob of Ranger Glossy Accents on each candle flame to complete the picture.
