Joy Candle

The Craft Barn have another challenge on their blog - a colouring technique challenge with the chance to win a £20 voucher!  All the details for the challenge can be found HERE

There are quite a few different techniques you can use to join in the challenge, the one I chose to have a go at was ''altering a candle'' so here is my attempt:

I stamped the 'Joy' and the flourish in green onto tissue paper and used my heat gun to melt it into the candle.  I cut a wrap of green paper from my stash and punched only the top edge then secured it around the candle using the green ribbon.  To finish off I decided to add some green gems to the ends of the flourishes. 

I was quite pleased with the end result!

Thanks for stopping by, Claire x
