Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - No Rules!

This Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is No Rules!  This week's winner will receive a $15 gift certificate from Marker Pop and choice of 7 digis from Bugaboo Stamps.  Wow!  Please come and play.

I have been wanting to try stamping on candles for a long time.  It is way too much fun and quite addictive!  This is a two-sided candle that can be used year round.  One side is Christmas, the other is inspirational. 

Victoria by Sugar Nellie

Here is a close up.  Isn't she beautiful?

This is Side 2 of the candle.
 CC Designs Swiss Pixie Angel and Baby Jesus

 These are digital images that I printed out on tissue paper using my inkjet printer.  I taped my tissue paper to a piece of heavy cardstock before I ran it through my printer.  It went through my printer fine.  Both images were colored with Copics then I cut them out as close to the image as possible and adhered them to the candle using wax paper and my heat tool.  I was too heavy handed with the heat tool on the little Manger scene (melting) - thus the inspiration for a two sided candle!

I first practiced on a couple of lightly used ivory candles that I had at home.  I bought a few white candles to make a few for Christmas gifts.  I prefer the white.  The images come out much more vibrant than the ivory candles.

Gotta have a little sparkle so Stardust Stickles were in order - a little for the angel wings, halo and the star.  I also used them on Victoria on the flowers.  The sentiment for Victoria was created on my computer.  The precious angel sentiment is part of the image.

I will be entering the following challenges:
