Penguin Candle Tutorial for Catch the Bug

As Guest Designer over at Catch the Bug / Bugaboo
it's my turn to show you all a Tutorial, so I chose to make this festive candle.

I created it using this Penguin Trio Blocks image
which can be found HERE in the Bugaboo store.

To create this candle you need to follow the steps outlined below.
It is much easier than you may think to make one of these candles.

Supplies Needed
Pillar candle (I bought mine at the dollar store)
White Tissue paper
White cardstock

Step 1
Choose your image and cover a piece of cardstock with Tissue paper
(securely so that it doesn’t catch or tear during printing)

Step 2
Colour your image (carefully as tissue may tear if the ink makes it too wet)
You should end up with this

Step 3
Cut coloured image out and place on candle

Heat set the image using a heat tool
Being careful not to scorch the tissue or heat the candle too much 

Step 4
Add wax paper over the image(s) and heat set again to give the image a waxy feel.

And here's the final product...

I hope I’ve inspired you to try this fun technique.
Check out all the other great TECHNIQUE posts from the Catch the Bug team HERE.

Another Holly Jolly Challenge

It's time for the last challenge of 2016 at Holly Jolly and it's a biggie...

Created a Christmas Card and/or an ABC creation (anything but a card)

This challenge runs from today 
(November 29th until December 31st) 
with winners announced on January 10th, 2017

There are lots of prizes from the lovely sponsors, 
so pop on over and play along.

Here's a couple of projects that I created this time.

This card was created using the Perfect Tree image from QKR Stampede.

Don't you just love this tree image? 
I coloured it with copics and stitched around the image, 
and card base and added a few hand-made enamel dots and it was done!!
I love how this card turned out.

Next is the ABC project.
I made a gift card colder which is quite easy.
I used the image Christmas Whiskers from Sami stamps for this creation.
Don't you just love this cute cat?
