Alice Candle Jar





Well this is today's creation. I got this jar at the car boot on Sunday so i am still doing my bit for recycling. It is all clean :) I coloured up Michelle Perketts Alice digital stamp found here. I used the handmade paper only this time i painted it half with grass and half with sky before mounting the digital stamp on the front quarter. I embellished the remaining quarters with trees, birds, butterflies and flowers and finished the back off with some  coordinating flowers.

I am entering this in Challenge 28 at Michelle Perketts SDC Challenge Blog, the main theme for this weeks challenge is Mothers Day which of course here in the UK has already been and gone but is this coming weekend in the States. I am also entering this in Pollycraft Monday Challenge, challenge 42 theme is 'Here comes the sun' and i think this fits in nicely :) Fun fun fun :)
















Had to add this, took this photo just now, nowhere near dark but much darker than earlier when i photographed them and so you can see much more glow now. So pretty :)

Hi Kerri! This is really a great idea for Mother's Day. You did a gorgeous job on your coloring of little Alice! The handmade paper really adds a lot of dimension when the candle is lit up. I'd love to see this out on the patio table all lit up on a nice summer evening. Love it!
