Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a pretty home decor' piece to share with you that is quick and easy to recreate.
I altered a chunky glass candle holder using paper, die cuts, ribbon and Copic markers to create a pretty Spring home decor' piece that would be perfect for a little gift.
To start I used the Grand Calibur ® Machine and S5-101 Wings of Hope, S5-104 Bauble Blossoms Two, S4-328 Foliage die templates from Spellbinders™ with Antique Gold Parchment from Discount Cardstock to cut/emboss all of the die cut shapes. Leaving the paper in the die templates I used Copic markers and the air brush system to stencil through the die templates adding colors to the paper.
Next I wanted to shape and add dimension to the leaves and flower petals so I used a foam pad and a stylus in a circular motion. As I went in a circular motion the leaves and petals start to take shape.
Once I had all of the pieces die cut, air brushed and shaped then I started to adhere everything to the candle holder. I started by adding this beautiful Silky Crush Rose Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, I used a hot glue gun to add the ribbon and all of the die cut pieces. Next I added the butterfly. I applied glue to the body of the butterfly so I could bend the wings out.
Then I hand cut three of the leaves from the cluster of leaves and glued them in place.
For the last step I added the bauble flower to the center of the butterfly and added pearl stamens for the flower center. **Note I used a quilling tool to roll the bauble flower.
I just love how the candle holder turned out and I think I will be making a few more of these for some gift giving. If you love the Antique Gold Parchment paper it is on sale this week at Discount Cardstock , click HERE to check out the details.
