Hello all! First, I have to shout out to my University of Kentucky Wildcats and congratulate them for their eighth national championship!! GO CATS!!!
OK, now that that's done ...
stamp images from Sheena Douglass to choose from. I chose "Oh Duck!". I made it into a decoration for a pillar candle. My candles all run on battery. (When you have cats you can never be too cautious.)
I started with the image on a 5 x 8 1/2" sheet of pale yellow card stock. I used a medium gray for the image. I colored most of the image (duck, water, cat tails, etc...) with colored pencils. I blended colors of chalks across the wording in the background of the image. I also used colored pencil on the "Oh Duck!" text. Please refer to the photo for examples of colors you could use.
I hope you try this out with any of your images. It would definitely work well with a shorter image and a battery powered votive candle. Have fun thinking which images you will use to decorate with!
