DE-STEMELWINKEL

As my DT piece for DE-STEMPELWINKEL today i have a decorated candle to share with you.
I used the beautiful LEONARDO'S ANGEL , stamped onto tissue paper, coloured with (brighter than normal, as the colours end up very muted on tissue) promarkers and heat fused onto the lovely vanilla scented candle. 
                                                   I made the box out of recycled acetate.
 The flowers are made from scraps of fabric and pinned to the candle so they can be removed when its lit.
 I'm not sure if i'll light  this one next weekend at our local churches remembrance service or make another with poppies on.... but i think Grandad would have liked this one.
Thanks for visiting BDx
I'd like to enter the following challenges....
