Waltzingmouse Day 3 -Sneak Peek - Some Feng Shui!

Welcome to Day 3 of the DT Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks! Today I'm highlighting the Asian Gardens Additions set!

I call this my 'Feng Shui' card because it's clean and serene! I made it by masking and sponging with 4 different colors and then stamping the images in black. I added 3 tiny black pearls - can you find them?! (one in the corner - two on the bridge)

I found this wonderful silver Asian style ceramic candle holder at TJ Maxx and More - so I just had to decorate a candle to put on top of it!

I stamped the images on tissue paper - placed the tissue paper against the candle - wrapped waxed paper around the candle and heated over the wax paper and image with my hot gun. This melts the tissue paper into the candle and it ends up looking like I stamped directly onto the candle!
I added a strip of black card stock at the top and bottom and tied twine around the top with an Asian coin.
I made a matching card to go along with the candle in case I give it as a gift to someone!
