.... for me anyway!
The theme over at Tuesday Taggers this week (where I'm featured as a guest designer -YAY!) is to step out of your comfort zone.
Well my project may not seem that 'uncomfortable' to most, but I assure you I was petrified it would go wrong.
Now I've mentioned before about my colleague's birthday (the card for which can be found HERE) and as a gift for her I wanted to put together a little "pamper pack" - some nice bubblebath and stuff, and a scented candle. Well I came up with the idea to match the candle to the card to tie it all in together.
I'd seen the demo done before on Create&Craft and thought I'd give it a go - although I was really worried it would go wrong and wreck the candle that I wish I'd bought more just in case!
For those of you who haven't seen it before, all you need to do is stamp and colour the image onto white tissue paper, lay it on the candle where you want it, cover with greaseproof paper and use your heattool over the area until you see the colour change; but careful not to overheat it otherwise the wax melts too much! See my worries!!
Anyway, it turned out fine; the ribbon was added for decoration and to bring in the turquoise colour, but it also covers a bit of a ripple in the wax lol!
Then I just made a tag to match the card and put it all in a nice giftbag.
And here's a pic of the three items together, not bad if I say so myself lol.
