I chose the" Colored Soot Stamping".
I sponged 3 colors of ink over my glossy cardstock and held the glossy side over the candle (=soot) part.
I stamped the "Leafy Vines" from Hero Arts on the soot.
Then I thought : why not reuse the stamp with VersaMark on exactly the same place, and heat emboss it with golden embossing powder.
I used hair spray for fixating the soot, and then I cut it into 3 parts.
For further decoration I made a bow with 2 ribbons, attaching them together with a brad, and a paper flower with a pearl on the leaves.
