By crikey it works!! (and it's easy!!)

I saw this idea on someone's blog. Unfortunately I do a lot of blog surfing and I can't actually remember whose blog I saw it on but I do remember that it wasn't her idea it was from yet another blog! It was to decorate a pillar candle with a stamped image! Had a go this evening and it works!! And is easy!! I was almost wetting myself with excitement!! I really wish I had bought more than 2 candles when I was at Ikea on Wednesday!!!!

















You stamp and emboss the image you want to use onto tissue paper. Then colour it (I used Marvy Le Plumes). Lay the tissue paper image over the candle where you want it to go then heat with heat gun and it kinda melts in with the wax! Dead quick and simple! This is my first attempt so I'm sure I'll get better at it. I made a matching card and added glitter glue.

What a great idea and it looks so simple. Think you might have seen it on Bee's blog, although she doesn't give the instructions.
