Stampin' Royalty #5 Take 2

Hi!

I'm going to a very good friend's birthday party tonight. I love giving hand made presents so I thought I'd have a go at making her a stamped candle. I've seen these everywhere. The fifth challenge at Stampin' Royalty is Anything But A Card. I've already entered my mini flippy album, but I thought I may as well enter my candle too.



You basically stamp your image on tissue paper, trim it, then lay it on your candle in position. You then put waxed paper over the top and use your heat gun to 'melt' the tissue paper into the candle. I own a little "Hand made by Tina" stamp so I also included it on the back of the candle. The whole thing took about 10 minutes to make, but I reckon it looks fantastic. I can see myself making more for gifts this year!

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Ink: Garden Green, Rose Red

Catch you later

Tina.
