A new year has started. Let it be filled with love, joy, happiness and sweet memories. To celebrate, I decorated two candles with flowers and a golden 2017 then lit the candles on the New Years Eve to give 2017 a beautiful bright beginning. Candles can easily be decorated with tissue paper. The images are either stamped or hand drawn on thin tissue paper and then attached on the candle with a heat tool. Now I can light them whenever a sweet memory is created this year!
Cut a strip of tissue paper with the length equaling the candle circumference. and the width enough to fit the images.
Stamp flower images on post-it notes and cut out to create a stamping mask.
Stamp a flower garland onto white tissue paper using Onyx Black VersaFine ink and your masks created in step 2. Place a post-it note mask on the stamped flower to layer the images; images stamped over the mask appear on the background of the protected image. Stamp year on a separate piece of tissue paper using Golden Glitz Delicata ink.
Paint flowers and leaves with All-Purpose Inks, using Fantastix brushes.
Fussy cut around the layered flower image, leaving a thin border around the flowers. Closed areas between flowers can be left uncut.
Place stamped tissue paper on the candle. Heat gently with the heat gun until the candle starts to melt. Melted paraffin wax adheres the tissue paper on the candle, and white tissue paper areas become invisible. Start with the stamped flowers and finish the project with attaching gold colored 2017.
