Nanna Said

hi there crafters 
not been too well for few days caught a nasty bug 
 feeling a lot better now i felt like crafting.

what a laugh !
 i wanted decorate some candles for Christmas so i gathered all the things i needed  it looks blooming easy when you watch others well i landed up doing a jig trying to keep my hands away from the heat gun and hold a candle at the same time needless to say
first one was OK-ish!!!!! cough cough...

 i wasn't going to be beat by a candle.
 but i could see my small stash of candles going out of the window after the first attempt
so i asked a few of my crafting buddies for some tips 
and as ever they came up trumps. 
off i trot to get sorted once more

i decided to make some keepsake ones for my grand children

 colored them in with my
 Next Generation Spectrum Noir
that was novel 
first time i have colored onto tissue paper they didn't bleed at all
  in fact they behaved very very well in deed 
i was impressed

 so here's my finished candles

 special message for Santa on the reverse 
he can't argue with this message 
im sure
created the message in craft artist and printed it out onto tissue paper
thank goodness for Stick and Stay   
it held the tissue paper firmly to paper while it went through the printer
and stayed tacky enough to allow me to place on the candles
perfect for this sort of thing

here are the SN colors used 

i think i could get used to this candle crafting
 it's fun once you get the hang of it
 note to self ....
must stock up on more candles

thank you for dropping by
