I have some candles that are battery operated so much safer when you have a cat that is inquisitive and likes to jump onto the mantle piece so real lit candles are a big no no.
I love the glow they give all orangey and thought how it reminds me of autumn leaves so had a wee play and this is what I came up with.
I used some cream leather textured paper and a poppystamps autumn leaves collage die and randomly cut leaves into the paper.
I measured and cut the paper to fit as a collar around the candle.I initially tried the collar just as it was but it didn't have the effect I wanted so I added some red vellum behind the die cuts and that worked perfectly.
I love how the leaves glow and as the light flickers the leaves almost seem to change colour and dance in a non existant breeze, but they certainly make a change from the plain cream wax,
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-
