My first Candle

Hello there x

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Today I decided to have a go at adding an image to a candle. I have been told verbally what to do when I attended the 'Craft Barn Extravaganza' & I have looked up videos on 'you tube'.

I must say I was quite pleased with how it turned out. 
What do you Think? Any tips how to make the colours brighter, or is this how it is when it get's transferred ? I did do a bit more high lighting once it was on the candle!


I shall be entering my candle into the following challenges:
LOTV- Ideas to inspire - Anything but a card competition.

WHAT I USED:

IMAGE: Unmounted rubber stamp from LOTV.

PROMARKERS: Used to colour image.

PEARL: From Meiflower.

FLOWERS: Mixture from WOC, craft shop & won as part of blog candy.

CANDLE: From £1 shop (just in case in went wrong)!!

I think these candles would make ideal Christmas presents.

Look forward to reading your comments & shall be over to visit you too x
