September 8th... Third Coast and candles

I LOVE LOVE LOVE candles. So today is one of my faves... stamping with candles, not to be confused with stamping on candles. AND we also have these cute stamps from Third Coast Art Rubber Stamps to give away as well. Here we have one of the stamps that comes in the set. I couldn't find my big block so I improvised... I used my Cuttlebug platform... it worked!You simply start by stamping the image onto the same colored tissue paper as your candle, a dyed based ink is fine... white paper and candle are easy. Here I've also colored the image .Next you'll need to trim closer to the image. I think because of the feathered look of tearing, it's best to tear instead of cut.

Then you'll want to wrap the outside of the candle with the images and place a cut piece of wax paper on the outside (which will come off) Yay... the stamped image!!!

Because this is done on tissue paper you can also print out your photo on tissue paper and add that to your candle. To do that you need to lightly adhere the tissue papeer to a lightweight cardstock before running it throught to print. Take the cardstock off after printing and follow the same steps here with the heat gun.
