I have been playing around with different ways to get more colorful candles and decided to break out the markers with a line image set to see what would happen. I was really impressed with how well this came out because once I finished the coloring on the tissue paper it seemed very dull and flat, but when it was melted onto the candle it really brightened up. I apologize for the darkness of the picture, but I could not find a happy medium on my camera when shooting this one, the colors are really vibrant in person.
I inked the morning glory image with basic black ink after masking off the phrase at the bottom of the stamp and coloring it in with marker. Once I stamped the image I used multiple markers to color it in then just let it dry for a few minutes before trying to cut it out. If you do this, I suggest making sure you have a good, absorbent paper underneath your tissue because a lot of ink is going to bleed through.
The phrase was stamped using Basic Grey ink, and the ribbon is a piece of extra ribbon that I kept from a votive candle package. I really like this candle and the overall look of it, and plan on making more of these for gifts in the future.
Thanks for looking!
