*Digstamp Boutique March Compertition*
hiya all..hope is all well..its time for another monthly challenge over at Digistamp Boutique..and this time not only a card to show but another candle..
I love the fresh clean look of cards these days..as i think less is more..i decided to put the flower digi stamp which is availible from Digistamp Boutique..on to a candle for my daughters new house.. which she soon nabbed..lol..
i,ve added white pearls to my card & candle which i got from wildorchid crafts..i have used prisma pencils to colour in..
*How to get your digi stamps onto candles..*
attatch some tissue paper(the ones you usually wrap gifts in) cellotape the eges to some cardstock as this acts as a backing to allow the tissue to go through your printer..make sure you have no edges of the tissue paper showing otherwise it may get jammed in your printer..i have an epson printer so i have no problem with this machine.. select your paper size you wish to print out on..i normally print my images at 4 x 6 but this is your choice..
once your image as been printed you can then colour your image in ..then carefully cut around your image leaving about 1cms.. then all that needs to be done is to attatch to your candle..
and heres the fun bit..wrap some greeseproof paper around the image then get your heatgun and gently heat the image in circular movements and you should see it change colour this process is actually adearing it to the candle..and thats it..all done :)
hope this makes sense..lol..
thanks for stopping by..and all your lovely comments..its very much appreciated
