Stamping on Candles

I finally got around to trying the stamping on candles thing, and I can't believe how easy it is! All you do is stamp an image on tissue paper (I used the "Measure of a Life," "Polka Dots and Paisley" and "Delight in Life" stamp sets, all from Stampin' Up!) Then you cut out the image very close to the edge and place it on the candle. Then cover it with wax paper. Then take a heat tool and heat up the image until it melts into the candle. Remove the wax paper, and voila! I used Old Olive dye ink for the "Measure of a Life" candle and Pixie Pink, Cool Caribbean and Glorious Green ink for the "Polka Dots and Paisley" candle (all SU!) I did burn my fingers a couple of times with the heat tool, but it's all good!
