* Bobby Candles *

Hi everyone

I've been wanting to have a go at stamping onto candles for ages, well today i plucked up the courage to have a go, the 1st one went straight in the bin :0( so did the 2nd :0( the third one i was quite pleased with :0) so i have that one on my mantel shelf and these are my 4th & 5th attempts which i am very pleased with:0)))))) but i must admit it was not as easy as i thought it would be and they are not something if you make a mistake you could cover up with embelishments as you can on other projects.

I used my Bobby snowman from the Stitchels range coloured in with water pencils.
Hope you like them.
