Stitches and Borders…on a Candle

Oct21 Stitched Candle blk

Our Angels Landing challenge today was to use the Faux Stitched Borders and if we wanted, we could mix in some Seasonal Borders.

I chose to try my hand at printing on tissue paper*, coloring it with Copics, and using my heat tool to melt it onto a candle! (Gina has a good tutorial on StampTv)

Dawn, this is the first time I've seen any of my images used on a candle. It turned out beautifully. Love how you've combined the main image of the three penguins with the sentiment, the snowflake border, and then the faux zigzag. What a great gift this would make.
