I Got Creative ....

Well I got a bit creative tonight before dinner. Today during the break between bus runs I went to Dollar Tree. I got three small pillar candles. I decided to try my hand at stamping candles. I have tried it before. But this time it seemed to click. So here is what I came up with. Nothing real special but I am pleased with the results. The pictures are not the best as I took them with my cell phone.

This candle is done with a flag stamp I got at a yard sale. I stamped on the tissue paper with basic black ink and colored it in with markers. I didn't embellish it any further. I thought it looked nice just as it was. The only thing I would add if I had one is a star brad to the star.

This is stamped with the Looks Like Spring set. Stamped in Orchid Opulance. Then I added a square rhinestone brad (purchased from Michaels) to the center of the Flower

This one is the flower from the Pocket Full of Fun stamp set. I stamped three flowers in classic black and colored them in with markers. Then after melting them into the candle I added multicolored flower brads. These were purchased from Micheals.
