Stamping on Candles and Sugar Bowl Challenge # 6

I've been meaning to have a go at stamping on candles for some time now, finally got round to having a play this evening. I had a few practice runs on an old square candle, and by the third attempt I seemed to have cracked it, without over heating the wax. So then I went for the biggy...lol, and here's the result...




I'm pretty pleased with the result. I've used SN 'Sweet 'n' Sassy' coloured with copics and sakura stardust pens. The flower rim stamp is from the Daisy & Dandelion range and again coloured with sakura stardust pens and a touch of copics green. Added a pink tartan ribbon tied in a bow, purely for presentation purposes, it would'nt be advisable to burn the candle with it on I don't think.

I thought this little project was perfect to enter into The Sugar Bowl challenge, where the theme is Mothers Day. You can either make a Mothers Day card or another card or craft project that you know a mother would love. Well I think many mum's would love this.
