Passion for Promarkers Tutorial .....

Every weekend there are tutorials at the Passion for Promarkers blog, they are excellent, full of advice and tips for using your promarker pens.

The weekend workshop #11 has a candle tutorial by Gina, so I thought I would give it a go.

I must admit that the candle did get slightly over heated, I dont mind it was just a first attempt but I think this has so many possibilities and another way of using stamps.

I am never one to start simple, I enjoy a challenge, I used Tilda with candy cane, stamped on to a paper tissue with memento ink and very lightly coloured with promarkers, the ink does bleed quite easily so its best to go gently, then cut around the image, place it on the candle wrapping a piece of greaseproof paper around and heating with a heat gun until the image has set into the wax.

You can get the step by step instructions and pictures here.

Gayle has some fabby candy to giveaway from her recent CHA trip, theres a link on my side bar, to go and have a look!!

Thanks for stopping by,
