paper clay and then painted and sealed with clear spray sealer. The thing inside the heart is a rusty bit of jewelry and a ceramic rose taken from another piece of vintage jewelry. The flames are painted tissue paper with a little glitter. I can't make anything without a tiny bit of glitter. I made the tiny candles by hand and also made the itty bitty rosary that is hanging on two small holy cards. If you'd like to see a close up of the rosary you can check out flickr. I aged some paper for the banner and used my letter stamps for that as well. The shadow box itself was a plain one from the craft store that I painted in layers and sanded for a worn feel. I'm so happy with it and I hope the recipient loves it too!
