It is the 17th of the month and I am waltzing today...from vacation. I am in Montana with my husband enjoying some nice cool, rainy weather, so different from my home in California. Since I am without my craft supplies (something I am going to remedy before before next summer's vacation), I made a few projects to share while I am away.
Today's Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz theme is Thanksgiving/Thankful and I have a lot to be thankful for. My family is all doing well, my husband and I have good jobs, we have a nice home and life is good and for all these reasons I am thankful.
I have made another candle. Yes, I was in candle-making mode last week. To see my Halloween candle from last week, click here.
I used Waltzingmouse Bountiful Basket Additions and Flourishes-Scallops and Dots to make this candle. The image was stamped in Memento ink onto cream colored tissue paper. I colored it with copics, very carefully because you barely have to touch the tissue paper with the pen, it spreads really quickly. After the image was colored you just cut it out as close to the image border as possible. You just lay it over the candle colored side up (I used a dab of glue stick to hold mine in place) and then lay a piece of wax paper over it and hold it smoothly and securely. Run your heat tool over it back and forth being careful to not heat too long as the candle itself will melt. You can tell when the image has been transferred because the tissue paper will become translucent. I did the same thing with the flourishes and the sentiment. You don't have to do them all at the same time, but try not to re-heat the images that are already adhered. The last step was just a little lace trim around the top of the candle.
