I began with a plain white tag and used shaving foam and Cosmic Shimmer Mica Sprays to marble the tag. You can find a small tutorial on marbling with shaving foam here. I used some very pale colours to give a subtle effect but unfortunately the shimmer doesn't show up well in the photographs.
Next I stamped Pickle on to black card and embossed him with Cosmic Shimmer Detail White. Then I cut his head and paws out, making sure to cut up a little way between paws and head to make slots so he would 'hang' over the heart.
The sentiment is from the Paw Prints On Your Heart set, this made me think about triple embossing.
The heart is stuck on with some red line double sided tape as it's very strong and I don't want the heart to drop off, it's quite stiff and a little heavy.
This might make a nice Valentine for a cat lover, it could easily be made with the dog stamps too.

Yes I did use tissue paper..I print the image on a piece of copy paper first to make sure the image was the right size for the candle..then cut my tissue paper a bit larger so not to have any waste of tissue...tape the tissue paper around the edges with masking tape over your image and it will go through your machine okay.Colour with dark colours if it's to light it doesn't show well..then I stick the tissue on the candle with a little bit of 'stick it' tap..Found a video hereReplyDelete
