Tilda's Tealight Holder - GDT Project for Stamping Sensations

Hello Everyone!

I have a GDT project to share with you today.
Couple of months ago I won the Photo Inspiration Challenge at Stampalot;
I was asked to guest design in the December challenge.
This month's challenge theme is Treemendous.

I have made a tea-light candle holder as the GDT project.

I started with a cylinder (5"H x 3.75"W) made of cardstock and
fitted a tray at the top to hold a tea-light candle.
I decorated the top and bottom edges of the cylinder with MS edge punchouts
and pom-pom ribbons, and filled the tray rim with WOC flowers.

I then attached a wider circle (5"H x 4.75"W) to the base of the cylinder
and decorated the edge with TH snowflake die-cuts.
I filled the space between the cylinder and the circular base with white felt strips.

I created a winter scene on a piece of 3.75" x 12" white cardstock,
using a couple of Magnolia background stamps and a mini winter forest stamp.
I colored the images with Copic markers and sponged the sky with ink.
I also used pearl and glitter pens to add sparkles here and there.
I glued the background scene to the cylinder with sticky tapes.

I stamped out 7 mini Tilda figures, colored them with Copic markers,
 fussy cut out the images, and placed them around the winter scene.

I have used a battery operated tea-light candle in the project.
The tray is large enough to hold a glass tea-light candle dish.

Thanks very much for stopping by and hope you enjoy this visit.

Now, time to hop over to Stamping sensations to check out their fabulous DT 
creations for inspiration and join in the fun creating!
