Mixed Media Monday - Ornamental Christmas


Gillian has set us this festive challenge. My entry started life this morning as a vase, I wanted something that could would be a table centre piece and therefore be seen from all sides. After masking off three squares, tamping and embossing flourishes in gold and attaching acetates in the three blank areas we have a tea light / candle holder.

Oh Moira, this gives such a wonderful ethereal glow...not only from the candle but from the lovely image and background that you've created. There is nothing better than a lovely candle to give a wonderful mood to a room.
