I decided to do something quite simple to complete in case it all went horribly wrong, I used the circle circus stamp set and the colours melon mambo, rich razzleberry and summer sun. To stamp the candles you stamp the required image onto tissue paper, cut arounf the image and then place where you want this to go. Then you wrap grease proof paper tightly around the candle once you have a firm grip you use a heat gun to seal the image in. When holding the heat gun on the candle you can see the image change, once this has happened you can slowly peel the grease proof paper off and TA DA! the candle is done. I cannot believe how effective they look and how easy they are to do. I hope my cousin liked them - it is always very difficult to get a gift for someone who you don't really know and don't see very often.
So for the card I used the same stamp set and the colours melon mambo, rich razzleberry, soft suede and summer sun I created two panels of whisper white and mounted this on melon mambo, then attached this to the card blank that was rich razzleberry. I random stamped the panels using 8 of the stamps two for each colour and again I love the effect - it is my most used stamp set, but I am still trying not to use (honest!)
