Cottage Garden Candles

Hi!

I've been wanting to have another go at stamping on candles, and with my friend's birthday recently I though that was the perfect opportunity. I bought her 4 little candles and stamped an image from the Cottage Garden stamp set on each in Rich Razzleberry ink. Her favourite colour is purple, and Rich Razzleberry is such a lush purple. I'm so glad that it's coming back as a core colour in September.

Here are the candles:



Now, pretty candles need some pretty wrapping, so I decided to make a little box to put them in. I used the matching Cottage Wall DSP for the box lid:



And finally some (non SU) ribbon to finish it all off:



I'm sure she'll love it.

Stamps: Cottage Garden
DSP/Card Stock: Cottage Wall DSP, Orchid Opulence
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Other: Green Satin Ribbon, Votive Candles, Tissue Paper, Waxed Paper - all non SU

Hmmm, now I'm thinking I need to make a tag to go with the box. Very conveniently the Cottage Garden stamp set has a tag stamp!

Catch you later,

Tina
