Fun day off as hubby was willing to go with me to the town 11 miles away where there are 2 craft stores with 50% off coupons. Frustrating, though, it seems they put on lesser sale most of what I'd like to use the coupon to get! Somehow I still managed to find things for both of us to get with the coupons--LOL--plus this candle was already 50% off! I was very fortunate recently to win the Stampendous! Jumbo Cardinals cling set. I had actually looked for it a couple times, as cardinals are special to me. We don't have them in Oregon, but I was born in Indiana & they always remind me of my grandparents. I stamped the cardinals on tissue paper using Tsukineko's Delicata Golden Glitz, cut it out & attached it by covering the image with waxed paper & heating with my embossing gun. The strip around the bottom is Stampendous! aged ivory embossing
enamel heated on a strip of heat resistant double-sided tape that I first
attached to a piece of tissue paper--then glued to the candle with Beacon 3-In-1 Craft glue--really good stuff! I finished it off with red Liquid Pearls, gold ribbon & a pearl. This will be my last entry for this month's Stampendous! challenge which ends tomorrow. So glad you took time to visit my blog--thank you!
