Decorated Candles

Something i’ve wanted to do for ages now is decorate candles. I actually bought some plain white candles for this purpose over 12 months ago but never got round to doing anything about it.

Well I finally plucked up courage and got out my stamps and inks and after scrabbling around for some white tissue paper which I knew I had somewhere from my cross stitch days. (Used when mounting finished projects to protect the fabric from any nasties in the backing materials.)

This one has been decorated with a Forever Friends image of the bear holding out a rose and some swirls. I've not coloured this as I didn't know if it would be safe to do so, but on reading through other blogs I see images that have been coloured so may try it next time.


This 2nd one was made with a family member in mind for her birthday.SAM_0121 I used the stamp a few years ago on her card but have not used it since. I stamped it 3 times around the candle so it looks good from all sides.

I'm linking to a few challenges with these: Teddy Stampers - #29 Love Bears. Crafty Creations - #104 my love is like a red, red rose. TandaStamps - #164 share the love.
