I started by stamping the boat with StazOn Timber Brown.
Color the image with some watercolor pencils.
Mask the image, and also tear some post-it notes to create a frame around the CS- see photo above.
Spray a little bit goosebumps on the CS.
Sponge the background with 'stormy sky' and 'pine needles' distress inks.
Cover the parts with petroleum jelly you don't want acrylic paint on , and paint some white acrylic paint over the entire piece. When dry, take a dry cloth and wipe away the petroleum jelly, which will also take away parts of the acrylic paint. Take the masking off and adhere it to a card.
I made three candles - to brighten the darker days of December !
I have always wanted to give this a try, so now was the time... One thing less on my TO DO list.. LOL
I used blotting-paper to stamp the images from the Fleurs stamp set
on, with a darkbrown solvent ink. I coloured them with watercolor
pencils, and distressed the bottom line with green and brown. Tear
the top line off the blotting paper.
Glue the blotting paper onto the candle with a glue stick, just to get it to stay in place.
Heat it with a heattool to melt the outer part of the candle
(just a little bit!), and smooth out the blotting paper onto the
I think I am going to make lots more to give away as a gift!
