Last Challenge at Karen's Doodles UK - White on White

Good Morning Peeps,

Sadly this is the last time I will be saying....... It's time for another Karen's Doodles UK Challenge.  Today is the last one for the current team.  I have enjoyed my time at Karen's Doodles working with all these fun images and design team members and I sincerely thank Ann and Joey for all their hardwork keeping the blog going and keeping all us girls in check.  I would also like to thank Sandy, who behind the scenes provided us all with the fabulous images that we chose.

Now, this week's challenge is white on white, are you mad Karen's Doodles, I don't do white on white, lol.  I found this task particularly hard but then again, you could say I chickened out as white to me meant Christmas and I have been wanting to make one of these gift candles for ages so straight away thought this could be white on white..... what do ya think?



I have chosen "First Taste of Snow" available from Karen's Shop HERE.  I printed her onto tissue paper and and coloured her using copics.  I then placed her on the candle and used my heat gun.  You have to keep it moving to ensure you don't melt the wax.   I added lots of Diamond stickles so she is very sparkly and also dotted them around so we have sparkly snow.


The circle on the top was embossed using one of the cuttlebug folders and came out fab as I used white satin card.  The poinsetta on the top is a Marianne Design Die and cuts beautifully.  I used foam pads to 3D it and added a little pearl to the centre and lots and lots of Diamond stickles, so this is a really glistening Christmas Candle and a fab gift.  I also used a Martha Stewart Border punch and addes lace from my stash and white ribbon for the bow tied with my Boweasy.



Please pop over to see all my fabulous teamies and don't forget to enter the challenge.

This is stunning Tracy. Im must say I think all white is a difficult challenge and would have me shaking in my boots, but your candle is amazing!
The image really pops because the rest is white, but I do like all the white, it looks really classy. Anyone would adore this gift.
(Thank you so much for your lovely comments on Poppy, very much appreciated)
Love Elaine xx
