The Crafty Pad DT... Things with wings...

Good Morning!
Today I am sharing with you my challenge over at the crafty pad. 
It was my turn to decide the theme and I decided on 
'things with wings'
From our sponsor this week there is a £10.00 online gift voucher

I have to say I am very pleased with my project for a couple of reasons... I have managed to print a digi image so that I can add them to a candle (hubby was more concerned about his printer!) and I also for the first time water coloured them without too much bleeding which I am so pleased at I was imagining much more...

So on to my project I have created a candle and a matching card that I am really pleased with... 
Running the tissue paper through the printer to get the image off to adhere to the candle. I also printed one on card for creating the images for the matching card...

I have coloured the images with my ink pads and an aqua brush and then stipple the background for the card using a shaving brush I have kept the card very simple and I am very pleased with it. For the candle I again water coloured the images and then sealed them with my heat gun...

I am entering these projects in the following challenges:
basic grey - things with wings
kraftin kimmie - summer colours
(wasn't sure if I needed to use one of there images)
penny black - summer
secret crafter - bright and cheerful
dcc and friends - anything goes

I hope that you like what I have created today and I love what the other teamies have done for this challenge also...
