Tildas in Spooky Town

Hi all, did you enjoy my tutorial on applying stamps to candles if not it's the post below this one!! For this card i used 2 Magnolia Tildas and Edwins Town stamps. I used my MS PATP Combo Rings, added some glossy bats and a sparkly spider. I created the background myself which i'm very pleased with, i used different greys and a couple of yellows and finished it all off with some ribbon and a charm and a sentiment.

Tilda on a Candle Tutorial

Hi everyone, i thought i would attempt a tutorial for putting stamped images onto candles. I've used Magnolia' Tilda with Cat from the Little Christmas collection and coloured with Promarkers.

  Warning Picture Heavy Post

Products needed are Candle, Tissue Paper and Greaseproof or Baking paper.

Stamp your image onto the tissue paper and colour in. Carefully cut your image out leaving a small edge and place onto candle.

Holding the greaseproof paper tighly around your candle heat it up with your heat tool until the colours appear to show up brighter.

I repeated the process for the stamping on the back of the candle.

I then packaged the candle with cellophane and decorated.

I tied some of my gorgeous roses ribbon prize from Crafty Ribbons, added some real holly leaves, pink poppies and handmade pins.

Around the bottom i added some lace and buttons.

I hope this tutorial was helpful!!
