Winter Scene Project - Tealight

This is my inspiration project for the winter scene challenge this week.  I just love the winter snowbirds from Morgan Fitzsimon's winter collection.  You can find the snowbird 1 here and snowbird here. Both images come in both coloured and uncoloured.  

I really had fun making this tea light project.  I found a pattern for the lantern at the Whiff of Joy blog. The blog has a very detailed tutorial for the tea Light holder. 

I got excited when I was colouring my little snowbird.  I used sour apple fun flock for one of the hats and diamond flower soft for the snow and the trim of the other snowbirds hat. I also used red Stickles as a trim on one hat and bow. 

I coloured the images with Copics and a white gell pen.The tree is a Tim Holtz die and , the green panel is a die, and a wooden bead and flower made up the top of the tea light.   

This was a very fun project.  Come join us this week at Fitztown.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
