Awhile back my mother-in-law asked if I could make her some candles for her dining area and living room. She wanted roosters for the dining area and lavender for the living room. With this as my inspiration I came up with 2 sets of candles. I really love the rooster candles. I stamped the image with Staz On on white tissue paper. I then watercoloured the image and then heat set on the candle. I added some ribbon and twine and Voila! They look really good on the wrough iron stands.
Since the lavender image I was using was small, I had to come up with a way to make a larger image. I decided to create backgrounds for the lavender. On the large candle, I brayered a sky with Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry. On the middle candle, I sponged a sky with the same colors. For the small candle, the lavender image was the perfect size, so I added a bit of Bashful Blue around the lavender. Since Stampin' Up! doesn't have a lavender color I used Perfect Plum. For a ribbon, I used Certainly Celery striped grosgrain.
