Stamped Candles

Good evening everyone. Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but I ended up going to the doctor because of my ring worm. It's driving my nutty! It covers approximately 40% of my body. It is worse than poison ivy. The doctor prescribed oral lamisil, plus benadryl. However, the benadryl makes me soooooo sleepy I can only take it at night. I'm still pretty miserable. However, I don't think it spread today, which is a very good thing! So, keep your fingers crossed for me.

My project today is part of my MILs mothers day gift. I'll be posting all the things for her gift over the week. I really had a lot of fun coming up with the ideas. Since we're taking her on an Alaska cruise this summer, we're not doing a big gift for Mother's Day. I think she'll like what I have come up with. She really appreciates hand made gift items. Let me know what you think at the end of the week.

This was my first attemp at stamping on candles. They're OK, but I think I could improve my technique. I need to figure out just the right amount of time to heat the candle/wax paper.

Stamps: Echoes of Kindness, Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Lovely Lilac
Misc: Candle, tissue paper

I'll post another item tomorrow, so check back soon!

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie

Wow, they came out great! I have not tried doing this technique yet. Another option is to use rub ons on the candles. I have tons of the SAB ones from last year, literally 9 full unopened sets. I think I liked it too much! LOL! If you don't have it and want to try it, let me know and I will send one to you!
