Its another lighty up one :D

Time for another challenge over at The Stampman and this time we are doing AUTUMN.  I love love love autumn cards, so many rich colours to use :D

For ths one I decided to play with my lighty up easels and have found an easier light to use, one that is widely available so I've used a battery powered tealight candle, totally safe and its like a little flame flickering :)

The image I've used is one of my all time favourites and is Celestial Dreams by stamp oasis which you will find here at The Stampman.

She's coloured with promarkers and sakura stardust pens, the stars and moon are gold and silver glitter.  Background is dcwv and the panel is starburst stains used with a cuttlebug (jules jewels) and swiped over lightly with a gold reinker (as I couldnt find my metallic rub ons!)

The flower is made with starburst stains and I've used a circle die to cut holes in the centres to slot the tealight candle through also cutting a hole in the base of the card and securing it there so you can switch it on and off and change the battery :)

This will be at Port Sunlight tomorrow as will The Stampman so hope to see you there!
