DT card for Glitter n Sparkle-Anything goes

well today has quickly come round its the first challenge over at GlitternSparkle and with it been our first challenge we though we'd be kind to you all and go with an anything goes challenge..

we have 3 brilliant sponsors this week which are 

LEJ Designs who is offering the first chosen winner 4 digi's

CDeeDesings who is offering our second chosen winner 4 digi's

and Fresh Brewed Designs who is offering the third winne 3 digis

so here is what i made using hatter madness from fresh brewed designs...

Firstly i decided to make a card.
i did this by colouring the digi with a mix of promarkers and fine nibbed pens
i then cut out the digi mat n layering it with a silver die cut.
i then placed it on the card blank with some silver ribbon and a big silver bow (first time ive actually used the bow maker properly) lol

i then decided to use the same image on a candle.
again i coloured it using a mixture of promarkers and fine nibbed pens


  1. fabulous work Emma - great matching card and candle! Hugs Rachel xx

  2. Wow love them both ,how do u get image on candle xx

    1. thanks pauline its pretty easy just print or stamp your image on to white tissue paper then colour in (or print coloured image) then cut out the image rughly leaving a small border round the edge. place the image printed side up on the candle cover with grease proof paper and heat with heat gun. you should see the image melting on the candle xx
