Magnolia-licious Blog Hop - Wedding

Good morning dear blogging friends! Welcome back to my blog. So glad that you found the time to visit today and I hope you'll enjoy what you find.

It's the third Monday of the month and that means it's Blog Hop time at Magnolia-licious Highlites! Our theme this month is wedding!!! June is wedding month pretty much everywhere so to honor that, we're asking you to hop on board with a beautiful wedding creation of your own.

Since this is a blog hop, you need to follow the order, 'cause you don't want to miss even one spectacular project that the DT have put together for you.

So if you've arrived here from Janiel's blog, your right on target.
However if you're starting the hop at my blog, you'll want to head back to the beginning.
The order of the hop is listed on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog. From here you're going to click the link to Patti Jo's blog so you can get even more inspiration!

Okay, now that business is taken care of, here is my project...

I have made (another) candle for my project and I'm lovin' how it turned out. This is my second attempt at stamping on candles - it's such a cool technique!

Here I have used #168 Loving Bridal couple from the Wedding Collection 2010 (available only in the mini size) and paired it with #660 Wedding Background from the same collection.


Here is a closer look at the couple...

On the back of the candle I added #3040 Flower Girl with Petals and a sentiment from SU. Unfortunately the Flower Girl is available in Mini size only.



Here is a closer view of Flower Girl Tilda...




To add some finishing touches I added some pearl lace to the top of the candle and plain pearls to the bottom.
I also gathered some tulle, made a Rosette and glued the layers together. I added some scattered pearls to the tulle. This was so much fun to make, I think I could quite easily get hooked on this.

So there you have it! Please don't forget to hop on over to Patti Jo's blog to continue your journey.

Blessings and huggers,

Barb
