Crafty Cardmakers Ch 58 - Use It Three Times

For our final challenge of 2011 on Crafty Cardmakers we are sponsored by Joanna Sheen.  She is offering a £10 voucher for her online shop for one lucky person.  So what's the challenge?  It has been chosen by Tracy who has picked Use It Three Times as her theme.  Use the same stamp or image three different ways.  It could be the background, main image and matching tag for example.  Using different colourways is another way, or even three different cards.  Go take a look at the DT's examples, there are plenty of different examples.

I decided to use a stamp I've had for ages, by Anita.  First I stamped her onto white card and coloured her in with Derwent Sudio Pencils, adding Sakura Stardust pen to give her a bit of bling, and cut her out.  I made a purple card blank and added a layer cut with Go Kreate Large Frames Frilly #2 in black and then Crafty Individuals DP from book 2 (Christmas).  Next I made a mount for my angel using Nestabilities Labels Ten.  Finally I added lots of bling.

For the bookmark I stamped the angel onto white shrink plastic using StazOn and then, again, coloured her with Derwent Studio Pencils and Sakura Stardust.  I love using Shrink Plastic!  I added some beads and then hung her from a bookmark blank.

Finally, I stamped the angel onto white tissue and again used my pencils and Sakura Stardust  to colour her.  I wrapped the tissue round my candle, then greaseproof paper before heating with my heat gun to adhere the image.  For the decorative base I used black card and DP from the Crafty Individuals Book 2 (Christmas).  The Merry Christmas label was cut using Nesties Labels Ten and then some bling was added.

These are all gorgeous, Jack. I've never seen that image before - it's lovely, and you've made three very special gifts.

The candle looks spectacular - I really must get some tissue paper and give it a go... I like your colour combinations a lot, too.
