How Many Candles?

It's not often I have entered a challenge twice but I so loved yesterday's simple sketch at Less Is More that I had to have a second go! I was also greatly inspired by the 'rainbow bright' challenge at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog  - I adore anything rainbow related...

    

I found an image of a candle on the internet and copied and pasted it a number of times in Publisher then printed this onto a landscape A5 card blank. I printed the same image onto some heavy paper, coloured the candles with promarkers then carefully cut each one out and placed them over the original image, creating a 3D effect with foam pads - I'm very pleased with the result!
