A spoonfull of sugar dt

Hope everyone is up for a nice easy challenge this week at A spoonfull of sugar we are wanting to see something 3d.  You know a box, a bag, a wallet, sky is the limit.  I lvoe these kinds of challenges cos i love to be able to see what i can come up with, and as far as i am concerned you can make anything out of paper, somewhere in my stash i have a grandfather clock that i amde that actually works, will share it with y'all later.  Well for this one i made a box.  Its an acetate gift box that houses two little candles that i used my mini Tildas from the spring kit, i stamped onto some trace paper, light weight trace, colored with my copics.  Now this technique is new to me and i messed up a couple of candles before i got it right.  The trick i found was to use some wax wrap over the image once you have it in place and then to heat the image onto the wax candle untile it appears to be one with the wax wrap and then slowly peel off the wax wrap paper.

The dp for this project is some Italian scrapbooking paper, dont remember the name of it, but i found loads of it in a shop that had it all piled up together and they were on sale so i took whatever i could, it was all floral and wall papery looking, but i love it.  I added a few bead pins and loads of flowers and pearls and then of course some lace that i have had in my stash forever.

So this is the second half of this.
