Light My Fire!

Not sure if this is really "HOT", but fire is what came to my mind for the Some Like It Hot theme at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Had fun with this easel card!

I've been wanting to try this using vellum with a battery operated candle behind it.  Wasn't sure if the camera would catch the flickering light, but it actually did.  The vellum is a little tricky to color on since it tends to puddle.  I had stamped on the vellum and also on another piece of white paper.  I cut the fire and the sky off the white piece and colored on the white and also the fire and trees on the vellum with Promarkers.  Used a little white gel pen in the clouds and Edwin is on white paper colored with Promarkers.  Added a couple of grapevine twigs I had with wire.

You can find Edwin and the background at our wonderful Diana's Magnolia-licious store:
112 HIKING EDWIN
519 HIKING BACKGROUND

Be sure to check out the new stamps she is adding to her store!  HERE  They are adorable and can't wait to use them!!!
Above is a picture without the "lit" fire  and below is the back to see how the candle is sitting.
Please join us in the challenge!  You will find all the details HERE!  As always Diana has a very nice surprise for some lucky person!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I always enjoy and appreciate your comments!!!  Enjoy every day!

Beautiful card, Patti Jo. Wonderful scene--I think this two images were made for each other--but it's still one of those that I haven't managed to do yet...LOL. Gorgeous colouring. Brilliant idea using the candle. The fluorescent looking fire looks fab. I bet this looks cool in real life.
Hugs,
Norma
