Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a decorative Fall Votive Candle.
- ColorBox Crafter’s Ink by Ann Butler – Tangelo, Limelight
- Earth Safe Finishes Iridescents – Tangelo, Limelight, Onyx
- McGill Punch
- Wilton Doily
With the advent of fall and the change of seasons comes the beautiful colors of fall. Ann Butler Designs has beautiful colors that were perfect for my project.
I first etched the glass votive with Etchall dip’n etch. Etching with etchall creates a “tooth” surface that allows you to apply all kinds of mediums to glass. Etchall allowed me to paint the glass with Earth Safe Finishes Iridescents. Using my fingers I painted on Tangelo Iridescents. Next, I painted on some Limelight Iridescents.
Finally, I randomly added some Onyx Iridescents.
The leaves were created by inking white cardstock with ColorBox Crafter’s Ink in Limelight and Tangelo, spritzing with water to allow the colors to mix, then punching them out.
The leaves were then spritzed with water and scrunched. After heat setting, the leaves were inked with additional Tangelo Ink and Onyx Iridescents was painted about the edges of each.
Then I painted a doily with Limelight and Tangelo Iridescents. I thought the candle would look pretty sitting on it.
Not only does the candle smell pretty, it looks amazing too.
I hope you enjoyed my project today.
Thanks for stopping by.
