CASology : Candle

HI there!

Candles are a wonderful element to create atmosphere, not only in our daily life, but also in design and more specific on cards!

So this week at CASology we want to see CANDLES!

Will it be birthday candles or Christmas candles?
Can you think of more ways to incorporate the cue in your design? I can't wait to see!

                                                               


Our Sponsor this week , Kitty Bee Designs, had birthday candles in mind with this cute birthday bee:




A closer look:



I opened the image in my Silhouette studio, added a small offset and used the print and cut function to the image as is, as well as a mirror image .

The sentiment is also from the sponsor. The Silhouette program make positioning of all elements really easy.


I colored the cute bees with my Promarkers, and stenciled a soft BG using a hexagon stencil also cut with my Silhouette.

I used Hero arts shadow inks in Butter Bar and Soft Cantaloupe for the stenciling.

Thanks for looking

Die zijn wel heel lief! Mooi zo op die gesponsde achtergrond en mooi van kleur! Fijne week verder (Oh ja, zag een heel klein stukje van iets dichter bij jou tijdens de Formule1 race...) Groetjes, Gerrina

Love how you think pal...nice link with bees and candles...just like the old days when candles were made with real bees wax! I still buy them whenever I find them, cuz I love the smell of the wax! Sweet little bees and sponged honeycomb background :)

I love your card Hannelie, that hexagon background is gorgeous and really focuses the eye on the cute Bees. Love using my Silhouette for digital stamps, so easy to do! Clairex

Those bees are just darling, Hannelie, and the honeycomb stenciling is the perfect backdrop for them.

Hazel Hodgkins said...

LOOOOVE it! From the subtle stenciled honeycomb, to the bee's little helper! I must remember that mirror function. Silhouette is on my wishlist for one day, and then, my dear, you will be my first point of call! So versatile!!
