Holiday Sweets

It's Terrific Tuesday at One Crazy Stamper, so that means it's my turn to show you a project!  Since the challenge theme for this month is Anything Goes, I have not made a card today, but instead made a candle for Christmas giving.
The image is an adorable House Mouse stamp called Christmas Cookie Eaters, that I stamped with Staz on ink on to tissue paper, then colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  The edges around the image were torn and inked with a Gathered Twigs Distress Ink pad.  The sprinkles on the cookies were colored with Siren, Gold Lame, and Luscious Lime Smooch metallic paint accents to add a shimmer to the image.  The candle was finished with a braided ribbon trim from my stash.
