Stamped Large Tea light candles

although not blogged in ages i have still been keeping crafty..been making christmas cards and birthday cards, jewellery, etc.. well it's coming to that time of year when i try to make some personalised crafty gifts for people. So for teacher gifts and stocking gifts i am revamping plain large tea lights with stamped images. very easy to do..stamped images using black stazon ink onto tissue paper..carefully colour in image, cut out circle to fit tealight. gently poke small hole through middle of circle and work wick through..gently heat image onto top of candle using heat gun..smooth out any wrinkles on wax and leave to set again for a minute.have used hunkydory Flutterbye gardens on these candles.
have a great crafty day

well during the night we have had about 3-4 inches of snow! the problem has been the wind and the drifts it has caused..we had a drift in our drive 18inches deep and one on the road outside our gate..spent an hour this morning clearing them so that we can get to work tomorrow..
have uploaded more hunkydory cards i've made with the kit.
