Gina's Designs DT Project: March Sketch Challenge - Believe

Happy March! This has to mean spring is right around the corner, right?  This layout is using the March Sketch Challenge.
As always, the chipboard pieces are first given a coat of gesso. The "believe" was inked with black soot distressed ink and then embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Midnight Brown. For the candles, I colored the flames with yellow and orange markers, embossed the the two end flames with Iridescent Sparkle and the middle flame with Stampin' Up! - Clear. The candle is painted white and the holders are embossed with Pirate Gold and I sprinkled a bit of Gold Tinsel while the embossing was still hot.
For the ornate side pieces, I took the square-like frame and cut it apart. I used Cocoa, Walnut Stain, Jumbo Java,  & Cosmic Copper inks before covering it with Hampton Art embossing powder - Clear. The same technique was used on the leaf pieces except I used Tea Leaves, Jumbo Java, & Hint of Pesto.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to upload your March Sketch Challenge to the gallery for a chance to with $10.00 from Gina's Designs!
