CASology Guest Designer

Hello! I recently won a CASology challenge and they invited me back to be a guest designer for week 226. This week's cue is:

At first I started thinking birthday candles, but then inspiration hit and I came up with this Christmas card instead!

I used my MISTI to help me position the single candle image three times in a row. I swear that little tool is a lifesaver! I stamped my sentiment in a bold, black ink below my candles and then colored them in with my Copics. I used R35, R37, and R39 for my reds and YR04, Y08, Y04, and Y00 for my flames. When everything was colored, I added a little clear Wink of Stella over the top of the flames to give it some subtle shine. I adhered my panel to a red card base to give it a little bit more color and it was done!

It's so hard to get a good picture of the shine from the Wink of Stella, but this gives you a closer look at the coloring, too!
