Stamped candle

Hi Stampers,

I have been "itching" to try this out. I have seen the samples on SCS and thought December would be the perfect time, as I could make them for gifts.

SCS has a great tutorial and the making of these candles is very easy. You start by stamping your image with Stazon onto tissue paper. You then color the image using Stampin' Up! markers. Once you have completed the coloring, you cut the images out fairly close.
Next, you arrange the images on the candle how you want and then cover with wax paper. Be sure the wax paper completely covers the candle and that you have amble extra to hang on to. You can use your heat tool to "melt" the images onto the candle. Time will vary, but you can see the tissue paper "dissolve" into the candle.

Materials used:

Candle (purchased set of two at Target for $5.99)
Tissue paper
Asian Artistry Stamp set ( I also used Friends 24-7 but forgot to take picture before giving it away)
Wax Paper
Heat Tool
