A stamped candle - Pollycrafts Monday Challenge #49

Close up:

I have 6 or so of these candles that I bought AGES ago from Ikea, ideally for stamping on and I totally forgot about them! It wasnt until I saw this weeks challenge at Pollycrafts that I decided to jump on board and have a go!

The challenge this week is 'NO CARDS ALLOWED... plus...USE GLITTER AND/OR LACE!!!' - perfect!

I have coloured my 'Sharing Sherberts' stamped image (From Pollycrafts!) in using ProMarkers which was stamped on to some tissue paper. Then cut around the images, and lined them up on the candle. Used my heat gun and TAH DAH! I have added some stickles to her wings too!

For the candle base, I have used some DCWV Citrus cardstock (My fav at the mo!) and I have made some paper flowers from the same stack (All cut using nesties and bug!).

I quite enjoyed this challenge, so you might see some more candles on my blog in the next few weeks!

Lou has Candy!

For her 25th Birthday, my luvvly friend Lou has some surprise candy to be won!

Closes on 30th June with the winner being announced on 1st July!

What are you waiting for?! Get over there now!
