Snow Fairy Candle

Last year I decorated a candle for a friend of mine which was my very first attempt at this and I loved it!! So as I had some free time on my hands, I decided I would make another one. This technique looks really effective but is quite easy to do. The most difficult thing was colouring on the tissue paper and taking a decent photo - the light will insist on bouncing off the candle - grrrr!!  You wouldn't believe how may pics I took before getting a half decent one.

I have added glitter to the image and made a matching tag. The stamp I have used is from The Pixie Cottage range at Michelle's Scrapabooking and More shop.  She is called Snow Fairy and is adorable... and so quick and easy to colour - I used Promarkers. Yes...the image on the candle has been reversed (put the tissue paper on the wrong way round - lol).

Anyway - that's my candle. Thank you so much for looking and I hope you like it.
