Tendril

Afternoon peeps.  A beautiful day but I haven't had time to go out in it.  Hubby has been nagging me for ever to have some more half shelves put into my craft cupboard to save me piling things on top of one another.  Today I gave in, so all my craft cupboard got emptied while he cut and fixed them and he told me it was an opportunity for me to have a sort out!!!  I have reluctantly had to admit that I should have said yes before.

My Candle Project


Products Used

Ivory Candle from Wax Lyrical
Image:- Tendril - Jade Dice - Deviant Art
Printed and coloured onto usual Card stock

Photocopied on to tissue paper and then melted onto the candle using greaseproof paper and a heat tool

  18. That's a new one for me, hubby showing more interest in enhancing your crafting so ace than you, lol. Sounds like a very kind hubby to me.
    You're great at decorating candles. I've got the candles, but am still lacking the courage to try. When I see yours I'm thinking I should just go for it, it's a lovely present.
