Candle, Candle in the night....

Welcome back to my blog for my final Dr. Monday M.D. post of 2014! I can't believe I just said that, but yes, it is true! 

 So I'm wishing you all very warm and heartfelt Christmas Wishes. All the very best to each of you in the coming year as well. 

 I'm excited about moving forward with my designing at Magnolia-licious™. It is truly an honor to work for Diana and to have so many talented and creative ladies on the team.

 I have made for your enjoyment (and mine) a medium sized candle jar. I hope you'll enjoy the pictures (not too many of them)... Firstly, here is a look at the jar before the candle inside is lit. I have used Vellum paper to wrap the jar (purchased at Michaels) as it allows the most light through.

 You must leave an opening to allow for the stamped panel...

I have used two images from the newest collection "Waiting for Christmas".  #3 Tilda with an Apple Wreath and masked it with #23 Snowy Cottage.
Here is a close up of my colored images.  I have used Copic markers and Adirondack Lights.  A little touch of Stardust Stickles on the snow flakes for added sparkle.
Here is a photo of the jar with the candle lit.  It gives such a pretty glow and because you leave an opening where the colored panel goes, a little light shows through it as well.
Here is a look at the back.  You can see that I crimped the vellum and then took two pieces of Magnolia DP from "Sweet Christmas Dreams", tore along the long edges and adhered them to the jar.  Lastly I added some pretty ribbon, punch out some snow flakes and added purple pearls to the centers.  To finish off the sides of each panel I added some dark purple ribbon, flowers and leaves punched using my Martha Stewart punch.
Here is a view from the top of the jar.  You can see the candle and how beautifully it glows through the jar.

I want to remind you that if you leave a comment on my blog, or on any of the other DT members blogs, your name will be automatically entered in the Surprise Package drawing.  Good luck...
