Let there be light



Happy Friday Friends I hope you all had a wonderful week :) I have wanted to make vellum luminaries for such a long time. Since it was wet and gloomy out today I decided it was the perfect day to to make them and cosy up my house.  I found a great deal on vellum at the craft store a few weeks ago so I bought some just for this project. I inked up my new stamp set I have not yet got around to using it's called Insightful Meadows you can find it here at Unity it is such a pretty stamp set.  It was on my wish list for a long time and I finally treated myself to it :)

 This is a super easy project all you need to do is stamp your image on to the vellum with VersaMark ink. Then cover it with white embossing powder and heat set it that is it - easy right? 



You can either adhere it to a candle or glass wear or just leave it loose which I did. I glued the ends together making a circle using fabric glue that dries clear. I placed it over a tea light that was in a clear glass holder. You could also use faux candles if you were worried about it being around an open flame. They are so pretty and totally change a boring old tea light into something beautiful :)


This is my friends with flair entry over the at the Unity Blogspot come and join in  :)  

 Thanks for visiting hope you are inspired have a great weekend :)
