More Candle Works.

Hey there!

I hope everyone had a wonderful (holiday USA) weekend.  Stormy here in the Midwest....yikes.  We have had trees down, power down and enough excitement for one weekend that is for sure.

I wanted to give a quick second post to an earlier project on image & stamping on candles. (See my "Candle Works" post) So much fun and have had a great time doing this. :)

This time I took images from stamps, and old designs, cards etc... that I copied onto tissue paper.  I did a random collage of thoughts & words....
It isn't too difficult really.  You will just want to glue a piece of tissue paper to a piece of cardstock so it can go through your printer.  Try a little glue from a glue stick.  It works great and the same process is then followed, that you use to transfer the rubber stamped images from the tissue paper to the candle.  Quick & pretty!

I decided to of course make this kinda~cutesie~gifty and added a stray Limoges (French) lonely saucer that no longer has a cup to call home. I paired with my candle and ta~da, a cute base for burning.  Luckily I noticed these stray saucers in an antique shop locally and thought they would be perfect for this! You could also find them at flea markets & garage sales perhaps for a mere song. :)

Much too pretty to toss away.....

You can add a bow for the final touch as I did above and it's ready for giving and burning. Fun project to play with....as you can tell....I kinda like them. :)

I am going to be putting these in my Etsy shop so check in with me.
