Pleasant Poppies - Candle and Card

Well another week is over and here in Alberta we are heading into our holiday Monday! It's Family Day!!  With my head cold and soar throat it may be a Daddy/Daughters day while Mommy rests.  I am very tired of winter. Although we have had a mild winter compared to many other areas in North America and I am thankful for that!  I do miss green grass and pretty flowers.  My favourite way to add flowers into my life is to stamp them!  Flower Embellishments are fun too.  This is what had me pulling out my Peasant Poppies stamp last week.

 Using this stamp I created a card similar to one I found on Pinterest and then I just had to try this one on a candle.  If you have never transferred an image to a candle before it is really simple.   You stamp your desired image on tissue paper and colour as you wish.  Be careful not to rip the tissue and remember to use the same colour tissue as the candle you are transferring to.   White is usually the best but vanilla will work too.  Cut the image out of the tissue as close as you can to the stamp. Then place the image on the candle and use your heat gun to melt the tissue paper into the candle.

I used my blender pen and dipped it in to Tangerine Tango Ink.  I kept the colour light for the card but for the candle I added a lot more ink including old olive for the stems.
I used a piece of Vellum for the sentiment and some Tangerine Tango ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration flyer.  The flower is from the Spring Mini and I dyed it Tangerine Tango and added a pearl.  How did I dye the flower you ask?  Well I used a Stampin' Spritzer and filled it with Tangerine Tango re-inker and alcohol. I then sprayed it all over the flower.  It was so simple.  I think these flowers are my new favourite thing!
Have a great week everyone.
