I ordered this Willow stamp, by Elisabeth Bell
as soon as it was released, and then I waited
and waited and waited for one of my friends
to have a baby girl and now FINALLY I have
a chance to use it.
I know I could have used it for a baby boy but
as a crafter when I get an image in my head of
how I want something to look, that's how it
has to be.
I used the layout at Sketch Saturday for
my card. I wanted the focus to be on the
gorgeous stamp and the clean simple lines
of this sketch were perfect.
When my card was complete I wanted to
colour another Willow, so I decided to make
a co-ordinating baby candle.
I found this beautiful baby poem for one side
with Willow on the other.
I made matching hat-pins for the card and
the candle and used the same metallic pearls
I love making candles. It amazes me how such
a simple process can look so stunning.
I just hope the recipient doesn't light it!!!!!
