IT FASCINATES ME!

For all you (many) Twilight fans.
I made this little set with a card and matching votive. The stamps are from the new EPIC TALES set from ARTFUL INKABLES. If you can't get enough of Twilight, I suggest you check out this and the other fun, twilight inspired sets available from AI.
I totally lifted the background for this from Michele Zindorf (whose work I adore) She had just posted THIS tutorial on her blog and I knew it would be perfect for what I had in mind. I can't wield a brayer like she can so I sponged mine instead. I really need to take one of her workshops!
This was an inexpensive glass votive holder from the craft store and I finally got around to using my Grafix Rub-onz that I have had for quite some time. It was really simple to do. I dumped a handful of these little clear glass beads into a plastic bag and added some plum colored alcohol ink. The "candle" is one of those fake plastic, battery operated ones that is so much safer than fire. I rimmed the top with a gold leafing pen - don't do this if you are using a real candle -poof!
I immediately gave this to my teenage daughter, I am sure you can guess why!
