Shine a light

Weeks before the big snow in I went to a fab class with Jean at Crafty Individuals. We made these delightful  lights. It involved stippling a backgorund onto the parchment shades using Distress inks and then over stamping with a CI image. I used the Christmas tree. It was finished off with a lovely crystal trim. I've used one of those battery tea lights to show off the images.

So I bought a couple to try at home. But this time I used a dark ink to stamp the image and I didn't like the result so I embossed the parchment with white embossing powder to calm it down. Much happier with the result.

I'm going to use these as Christmas presents.


  1. Lovely tealight holders !! They look great !!

  2. Wowww these are just gorgeous, Janet. Love the beaded trim.

  3. Fabulous idea for Christmas presents, what a lovely idea the recipients will be thrilled I'm sure. Lovely pieces, each one so unique. Tracy Evans x x
