Eerie Elegance

Haunted Design House this week for Macabre Monday... the challenge is to make something Eerily Elegant.
I punched shapes out of black paper, lined with vellum and made candle holders out of them. Very time consuming for the first time around, but I learned A LOT doing this!!! So, next time I want to make something like this I have some great ideas.
Here they are lit up with the lights out.

    I can't look at your blog with my middle daughter around. She SOOOO desperately wants a dog and your is so cute. It makes her start nagging me. LOTS. We are getting one in the spring, but she just can't wait.

  6. Beautiful. Been thinking about you. Wondering where you would suggest buying collage papers. I like gloss papers, are all scrap booking papers vellum or non gloss? Just wondering what some of your favorites are.
