Arty Girlz challenge - Use a verse or a quote

I have made this candle using elusive images stamps. The quote is "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom" I think I may give it to the headteacher who is retiring at christmas.

I found this technique of using tissue paper to create an image on a candle. you have to stamp your desired images onto tissue paper. Colour the image and then place onto candle where you desire it to remain. Put greaseproof paper on top and heat with heatgun until wax melts over top of it. Then add a strip of coloured card and some ribbon. I embossed the card with a sentiment using my cuttlebug. The candle holder was 47p and the candle £1.50 so as you can see a cheap pressie in current climate.

I will now try to perfect the technique making these for family and friends using different stamps,colours, sentiments etc.
