Bird candles (Mixed Media Monday wings of love)


My husband bought me these candles from a summer fair last year knowing I would alter them one day! I have been watching the Paper wishes webisodes and loved the idea of stamping onto candles. I have just added a simple ribbon and some faux gems for a bit of bling to make the main bird image the focus. The candle looks lovely and Christmssey next to my poinsetta given to me by my friend Chantelle.

Gorgeous candles! I can't begin to imagine how difficult it must be to attach transfers to a slippery, waxy surface. Wonderful work.
