keep the candle burning

Over at House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge  the new challenge,
#247, is up and running and hosted by lovely Christine.
The theme is "Anything but a Card

My creation is using a new stamp called Garden Kiss,
stamped onto tissue paper, coloured with copic markers then
'melted' onto  my candle.  Some brads, and lace were also included.
My sentiment stamp was added with tissue paper too.
The candle is a short stumpy one which was perfect
for my sized stamp.
If you want to try this technique here is the link..
