Oh My We're All Tangled Up!

Happy Friday! Today's post is using the super cute Mr & Mrs Claus stamp image called "Twinkle In A Tangle" (#4665). I made a cute candle and matching card which will make a nice gift for that someone special!
I used paper from the Photo Play Dear Santa 6x6 collection. I added a red doily behind the popped up image which makes their outfits pop! A bit of twine, Stickles on the lights and a gem embellishment finish off my card!
The candle was actually easier to make than I thought! Stamp your image on a piece of tissue paper, and colour as usual. I did find that you couldn't really add your different markers for shadows etc, and you needed to make your colours a bit darker than usual as when applied the colours aren't as bright. After you have finished colouring cut out fairly close to your image. Lay your image on the candle and put a piece of wax paper on top. Using your heat gun heat the image. You will see the tissue paper disappear as it heats. Peel back the wax paper and voila your done! Easy peasy!! I did 2 images like this and put one on each side of the candle.
I used the Art Impressions sentiment called "The Season" (#4167).
