DT Day at Meljen's Designs

Good morning everyone and Happy Tuesday :)  I get to share something with you today and it has to be Any thing But A Card for my DT Day at Meljen's Designs!! I decided to try my hand at a candle. I have been seeing candles done and have read about them, but I needed the extra push to actually try it I think! So, I dug out my Copic and colored this awesome little guy, "Sweet Little Foxy". I put the image on tissue paper and colored it with my Copic with a piece of paper underneath... major bleed through with tissue paper no doubt! I cut around the image and put it on the candle. Then I covered that with wax/parchment paper and heated with my heat gun. Dont' stay in one spot though, because your candle WILL melt!  Here is my first try at a candle...


Not too bad for a first try :)  I think I will definitely try again. I also think a white candle would have been better and I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for some good priced candles! I hope you enjoy and I hope you will try it out for yourself!  One thing though... if you try it, I want to see it!!! LOL :)  Have a great day everyone!!
