Glimmer Candles-Nacho Average Challenge #53

Welcome back to the Nacho Average Design Team weekly challenges. We took a break for the summer, but are now back with a new blog site and some new members of the Design Team.  We hope you will enjoy our creations, find some inspiration and participate in the challenges with us!

So, let's get started with a sketch challenge.  Here's my contribution:


Glitter Sunflower 013-1

I started out with a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper measuring 12" x 1/2". I cut it into varying lengths.  Using a sponge dauber, I added color from various ink pads to the shimmer paper.  The candle flames are the "wing" from the Bird Builder punch run through the Big Shot using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  This card really sparkles in person!

Here's the original sketch:
