Now that we’re enjoying warm summer evenings, it’s lovely being out in the garden quite late. I love having candles outside so decided to stamp a vase to hold a large candle.
Stamp (Hero Arts) – Antique Engravings
Of course when I was doing this I didn’t take into account having to photograph it! I had so many problems with reflections, trying to capture the sparkle of glitter and also because the butterflies are stamped all the way around the vase, in the photos it looks like some of the images overlap – aagh! The photos aren’t great but I gave up on getting good ones!
Using white StazOn, I stamped three different sized butterflies from the Antique Engraving set on the vase. We have ivy on parts of the garden walls so there is always a plentiful supply to make ivy rings. So I white embossed a number of butterflies on vellum, added diamond stickles, gems and attached them to the ivy ring.
