Candle wrapping

In the continuing effort to use what I have...I decided to make a new wrap to go around this candle tin.
I got the candle a few years ago after Christmas on clearance...super deep discount that I couldn't pass up. Especially when I realized that the ugly Christmas paper would come right off. 


I used watercolor paper as my base. The background color was achieved with distress inks, dress pattern tissue and found text.

I sifted through some of my new stash from a couple of swaps. I'm sure some of you may recognize some of your stuff. I love new fodder. It can be very inspiring.

This is going to be a gift...I hope the recipient likes it!

Very creative. Love the way you used some of your new stash pieces on that clearance candle. Way to go.
