Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge is all about "WAX" and I knew I would be doing a candle. I did a candle when I first starting stamping, way back four years ago and just thought it was so cool. Now today when Lisa's Bloggers Challenge listed colors, I so knew I would use a band of lovely pansies!!! All stamps are from Artistic Outpost, Flappers Fashion for the pansies and Birds of a Feather for the sentiment!
The images were stamped on white tissue paper with Stazon black and colored in with Stampin Up Markers. This is a very simple technique, because it just involved stamping and coloring in the lines! OK, it was a bit of a pain as there is quite a bit of green leafy matter and I stamped the image four times for top and bottom and to get it all around the candle! I think it is worth the coloring time and this would surely make a nice gift! Don't you love the "Ant Dude" shoveling all the snow away to bring Spring in??
Green, Black, Purple, Blue, Vanilla or White
Why would I be using Spring as a theme, well I question if this is Spring or Winter! We have been in the mid to high 60's during the day, but still dropping quite low at night. Most of the Midwest has not seen a snowflake and are enjoying warmer days, so I felt as if Spring has Sprung! We are also going to Spring over to Simon Says Stamp and Show Something New ... Something Old. My candle is new and my stamps are old!
I sure hope you are enjoying this first week of "2012." Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!
