JUST MARRIED

Hey there all you OCL Blog Hoppers!  If you have been following along from the beginning, I'm sorry to tell you I'm your last stop...I hope you had fun and picked up a tip or two along the way.  If you joined us somewhere in the middle, then keep going...there's still plenty more to see!  Well, today is the day that you get to find out what stamp set I'm giving away as blog candy, but I'm going to make you wait just a little bit longer...I know, doesn't seem fair, huh?




I mentioned last weekend that I took a class and learned a new-to-me technique that I couldn't wait to share.  Well, this is it!  Cami and Kisa (my OCL gurus) showed us how to put a colored image on a tealight candle.  OMGosh...it was so much fun (and easy)!  I couldn't wait to try it out on a little bit bigger candle.  Did you know that you can shade with your Copic markers on tissue paper?  Well, I tried it and you can!  How cool is that!?!


While I was coloring my tissue paper, I thought it would be a nice touch to include a couple champagne glasses and to decorate them to match the candle.  That got me thinking...gotta have a box to put everything in, right?  Bada bing, bada boom...I worked up a template and made the box.  I'm just glad there wasn't anyone at home when I made it.  Dang it if I didn't end up talking to myself!  Ha!

I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  But wait...that's not all!  Don't forget to check out the back.  See that white space above the car.  How cool would it be to include the bride and groom's names and the date of the wedding?  Go ahead, say it...PRICELESS!

Have you figured it out yet???  The set I'm giving away as blog candy is Bird and Groom!  The same set I used to make this awesome wedding box!  How would you like to own this set?  All you have to do is leave a comment and make sure you leave your email address or be logged into Blogger so I know how to contact you.  If you left a comment on yesterday's post, you will have two chances at winning (one post per day/per blog please).  Each stop on the blog hop is giving away a different set so be sure to make the rounds and comment, comment, comment!  Only one set per winner.  You have until Saturday, November 20th, to comment on the blogs and winners will be selected on Sunday.  A complete list of winners will be posted on the OCL blog.

I'd like to include this project in the Creative Belli Challenge ~ Old, New, Borrowed or Blue!  (3 out of 4...I've had the glasses since the last wedding project I did, the candle technique is new-to-me and I borrowed the stamp set from a friend).

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
