This is for Speedy the Cat's Altered Item Challenge #78. (Here is the website for the challenge)
To stamp on a candle!?!?! I have to admit I honestly didn't know HOW or IF it would work....and was absolutely amazed to find that it NOT only worked...BUT was very quick and easy! Amazing!!!! I am not really sure how safe it would be to burn though so I opted to try it first of all on a battery operated tea votive...then did do it on a short pillar candle. I think I would still opt to use the battery operated as I think it would be the safest to burn!
BUT...easy to do...I stamped with MFP Ginger Cookies with Cocoa Memento ink on tissue paper. The sentiment was also from MFP Ginger Cookies with Cottage Ivy Memento ink on tissue paper. Cut out around it leaving an edge...then laid it where I wanted it on the votive outside...took a piece of wax paper and wrapped it over it and rolled it tight to the back of the votive so I could hold it flat...used my heat gun until it melted...and it melted right into the wax...doesn't take long! Then when it cooled I used some Bic Markers and a glitter marker to add a little color.
Then I decided to also try it on a pillar candle. This time I used MFP Cardinals in Winter and stamped the cardinal part with Ladybug Red Memento Ink and the leaves with Cottage Ivy Memento. Followed the same procedure with the wax paper...and here it is!
|Here they both are.|
This could be a great holiday gift!
