March Sketch Challenge by Mary M

Happy March! This has to mean that Spring is right around the corner!  Mary here with another layout. 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 distress ink and then embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang in Midnight Brown. For the candles, I colored the flames with yellow and orange markers, embossed 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.
