Lacy Sunshine Challenge # 9

Goodmorning!!!  It's time for a new challenge over at Lacy sunshine challenge blog.

And for this new challenge I got to play with one of the new digis called Griffon!  Just adore this little guy.  He's just perfect for me and he was perfect to try something new.

I made a set a candle and a card.  I was really scared of making the candle and in the end it wasn't that difficult.  But I did color the image on my regular paper 1st than scanned it and reprinted the scanned version on the tissue paper.  This way if I had messed it up I would have been ok to try again.  But I'm happy to say that the 1st time was a charm.  And the great thing is now I have my very own pre-colored griffon!  So I can make  a whose series of card.

Here's my card for a closer look:
To make this card I used some left over papers from my stash!!!!  YAY!  I used my big scallop square and my large square.  I used some ribbon as well from my stash.  The border was done with a MS punch.

Here's a closer look at the digi and the great sentiment from Create with TLC.
And here's a closer look at the candle that I made:

I followed this great sketch to make the card:

  10. Woo hoo you finally did it and went and made a candle. Did you follow the tut I had posted from I Love It or did you go with something else. Either way it turned out fantastic!
    Great idea of colouring your image, scanning it and THEN transferring to the tissue. I might just have to try that.
