I Didn't Mess Up!

I'm so EXCITED!  Now normally I hate trying new things because I'm always afraid I'm going to mess it up BUT I finally had some free time & decided to try out an SCS tutorial on transferring stamped & coloured images on to candles.  It is the easiest thing EVER!  A huge, huge THANK YOU to my Paper Sundaes DT Gals Alica & Lisa for making these for the Paper Sundaes "Gift it" Challenge last week.  If I hadn't seen their beautiful creations I never would have tried it out.  If you click on their names you can check out the fabulous candles they made.

Here's mine:
I used a Magnolia image "Tilda with Christmas Tree" and stamped her on the tissue paper, coloured her with copics and prismacolor pencils, and then very carefully followed the tutorial instructions to finish it up.  On the back of the candle I stamped a Christmas verse from a Stampin up set I have.  Now I'm off to add some jewels and finish it off.  I was just so excited couldn't wait to share!!  Definitely check out the tutorial & try it because if I can do it YOU CAN TOO :)  I can't wait to give this away at Christmas!

I will be entering this into the following challenges:

Wags N Whiskers Challenge #42 - Snowflakes
Charisma Cardz Challenge #49 - Christmas Gift
All that Scraps Weekly Wednesday Challenge - Gift Ideas
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Anything but a Card

This turned out great!! I use to make these all the time, never thought to use a Tilda with them, didn't think it would be easy to color onto the tissue. Will have to give it a try!

Wow...your decorated candle is amazing! I shied away from decorating a candle because I thought that it would be too challenging and that I would end up with a big mess! *lol* Everyone says how easy they are to make and thanks to you, I'm definitely going to give it a try! ☺
Thanks for joining us at ATS this week!

Love how your candle turned out! Just beautiful! I tried this technique years ago, but have never been brave enough to try it with a colored image - way to go!
I miss you girls!
Happy Holidays!
