Prayers for the Day

I am in love with this new set from Hanna Stamps, "For The Soul." For this card I used a base of Basic Black and overlayed a layer of vellum that I used one of Martha Stewart's scallop border punches on. I used Ranger Alcohol Inks on glossy paper and blotted the colors. I let them dry and stamped the stained glass window on top of the colored parts of the paper. I cut out my two favorite windows and used them as the background for Hanna, who was cut out and placed in front.

I used the Swiss Dots folder from cuttlebug for the background paper and added some flowers and fern branches (also from Martha).

What I really wanted to highlight in this photo was the candleholder I decorated, but I could not get a great photo for anything! In real life it truly sparkles, though. I stamped Hanna images onto clear acetate with StazOn and carefully cut the images out. I chose a votive holder that had straight sides and attached Hanna images with very tiny amounts of red sticky tape. Then I covered it all in a big sheet of red sticky tape that I had cut out to wrap around the votive holder. I put micro beads all over the tape. Voila! It is very pretty in real life and shines at night.

Don't forget to join us at the Hanna Stamps forum on SplitCoast Stampers for our Anniversary week, and one year Anniversary and Release Party Thursday Night! Also, we are still giving away new Riley Moose stamps so be sure to visit the other Hanna Design Team members' blogs and leave comments. One winner per blog! That's a lot of chances to win a new stamp.

Kudos for stamping on such a tricky material like a candle holder. When I enlarge the pic I do get some of the "sparkly" feel, so it must be beautiful in the full light.
