Embrace Lantern


I made this last night at Crop & Craft Til Midnight at our local craft store. I actually didn't stay til midnight, just too tired ! LOL I made it thinking about one of my best friends. I'm trying to think of an excuse to give it to her, maybe I'll give it to her just because.
I found the idea for this lantern here at Splitcoast Stampers.

This picture is really dark but I wanted to show you what it looks like with a candle inside. This is the best I could do :)

Recipe - Not Quite Navy cardtock, Sage Shadow cardstock, watercolour paper, Stazon black ink, watercolour pencils, Embrace Life stamp set, eyelets, Natural hemp twine and parchment paper. All items SU! except the parchment paper and the watercolour paper.

Wow, that's so fantastic - it's beautiful when the candle isn't lit and really atmospheric when it is. Great job!

This is so pretty. I think I might just have to CASE that.
And this stampset is just perfect for it!

I love this. I never noticed them on SCS. It works so well with the Embrace life set. I'm just curious is there any problems with the paper when it burns?
