I am loving trying new altered a Scented Flameless Candle :D
Fun Fun Fun~~if you have never done it~~~it is worth a try :)

I had seen the idea several times on different blogs~~when I popped over to the Make It Colorful Blog and saw the gorgeous one that Danielle did I was inspired!!  THANKS DANIELLE!!!!  And their very own Lydia has THIS wonderfully detailed tutorial to follow~~Thanks Lydia!!!

So here it first time using Tissue Paper with Copics---lot of firsts here for me :D

After adhering images I blinged the flowers centers with PM rhinestones, bordered candle with FS gold stickers and added sentiments from HG
Next pics show when lit up~~Just Stunning and being flameless I can have it forever :)

Entering challenges:
Make It Colorful #4~~ color on anything but white CS ~~I used tissue paper with Copics!!
Allsorts #88~~ Saving nature--- I recycled the tissue paper from our Christmas Presents--truly amazing how it turned out cuz the tissue paper was very wrinkly when I started :)

Mary Lou...this is so stunning!!! I've been back about four times today just to have another peek at this candle. Wow!!! This is something I have yet to attempt...but I may have to soon!! You achieved some gorgeous shading on the tissue paper...loving the depth on the mushrooms, and the little girl is completely adorable. What a fantastic idea to use a flameless candle too...brilliant work my dear!!
