Daisy Doodles Candles CDAC

This gorgeous image is one of the freebies included in round 6 which is the final round of Series 1 of the Progressive Challenge at the CDAC. This image is Candles and is by Daisy Doodles and as a member of both the CDAC and Daisy DT’s I just had to have a play with it didn’t I?


I coloured my image in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added a second
 layer of the holly and berries mounted onto 3d foam. The circle behind the image is embossed card from Craftwork Cards which has been inked with Distress inks and a duster brush to produce a glow around the candles. I have added Stickles glitter glue all around the edge of this section.

The scalloped edge card has a layer of green card from my scraps box and on top of this is a gorgeous glittered cardstock from the Dovecraft First Edition Pad Christmas Joy. Every single holly leaf is glittered and it’s just a bit gorgeous J

For a finishing touch I added some Crystal effects to the berries and veins on the leaves and the decorations on the candles for an extra shine. I felt a sentiment would spoil the cleanliness of the card so left one off.


If you took part in round 5 of the CDAC Progressive Challenge you will have received your fabulous images. You still have over 24 hours to enter the challenges and if you missed out on the last challenge you can buy yourself back in for only $1 which is great value when you consider that this image alone costs that in the Daisy Doodles store. I hope you will head on over to the CDAC and be part of the fun.
