My Besties Spanish DT Inspiration Make

My Besties Spanish DT Inspiration Make Challenge #39



Hi Happy Crafters, 

I am so happy to be on the design team for My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog! I am joining a great team of talented ladies.

This is my first design team inspiration make for the September #39 challenge.  
The topic for this month is "Anything Goes" (always)

We would love to see your creations. To join in our challenge over at My Bestie Spanish Challenge Blog, click HERE.

For this months challenge i used this beautiful digi stamp. Click here for the image. I thought I would make something that I hadn't done before, so I made a lantern, keeping in line with the theme of this digi image. 



Decorated lantern
I coloured the image using my alcohol pens, and colour pencils. i added lace and velour trim around the edges of the lantern and the edges of the cut out windows.
I also added black mesh sheeting from my craft stash on the inside of the cut out windows.


Perfect for tea lights

The lantern measures 6 inches in height and 4 inches on each side of the sides.
 I cut out windows on all the sides except the front.


I blended distress ink and inks on white card panels to add colour to the sides.

I also used my flower folder to emboss the card before sticking the sides then added the coloured panels.





This is how the lantern looks at night when a tea light is added.
