ABAC1 week 2 - Stamped Fall candle

This is just a little reminder post for Anything but a card challenge blog - you still have a week to play in our first challenge - you can create ANYTHING (but a card of course) :)
Today I made a stamped fall candle. I used a stamp from Heartfelt Creations Scenic Combo PreCut set. Stamped the image on tissue paper and colored it with Copics - if you never tried to color on tissue paper here is a tip - you need to use darker colors than you would normally use and don't count on super detailed blending  ;)




The flowers - small ones are cut from little cork coasters and the bronze one under was painted with mix of PearlEx and ModPodge - these too together provide a good coverage, so if you have some flowers you don't like, you can paint them over and have brand new ones.

I'm entering it into these challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenges - Anything But a Card
Amusing Challenges - Anything But a Card
2 sisters challenge - fall
Raise the Bar - celebrate fall

Oh this is so pretty! It has been a while since I've tried this technique - what a great idea for teacher's gifts! Thank you so much for joining in on our challenge this week at Raise The Bar!
