Be Thankful Candle

Hello everyone! The challenge at Peachy Keen this week is to decorate/stamp a candle. This is a candle that I stamped and decorated. I have had this candle FOREVER!!! You can tell if you look closely at it. I've never burned it, in fact it still had the plastic on it, so it was perfect for decorating for the upcoming Fall season. 
I have never actually stamped ON a candle until this project. After I finished mine, I saw the way that other people do it. They stamp their images onto a piece of tissue paper and then glue it onto the candle. I will tell you how I did mine.
I started by using my embossing heat tool and melted the surface of the candle. Very quickly I inked my leaf stamp in a dye based ink, and stamped it into the melted wax. After I stamped it, I heated it up again to help seal in the ink. This did NOT seal the ink in completely, so I used a baby wipe and blotted the surface until all the excess ink came off....otherwise, when you touched it, you would turn red! LOL!
I created the band by cutting a 2 X 12 inch strip of kraft paper and punched the edges. I also ran it through a crimper and inked it all. The tag cluster I made by stamping the images, cutting them out, and distress inked all of them. The tag I stamped using My Craft Spot's new Happy Thanksgiving set. I then added a brad through the center of the tag cluster and threaded raffia around the candle and through the hole. I tied it off and then shredded and crumpled the raffia.
I really like how this turned out! It will look great on my table this fall. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

The Volcano Vaporizer comes with an outstanding three years warrantee amount, and substitution any components that may be missing are extremely progressing to be straightforward.
