My first decorated candle

I have often wondered how clever crafters actually manage to stamp on candles, do they just have a nack for rolling the stamp around the candle and then really cleverly colour it. Well I found a really good tutorial on passion for promarkers and I can't believe it is so easy, I managed it and I was quite pleased with the results, despite the only candle I could find was a long thin one, the hardest part was finding a suitable image,but I think I managedsee what you think and if you fancy a go pop over to the tutorials on passion for promarkers, you could then enter in their challenge.

I am going to enter my candle into a few challenges well perhaps more than a few as they all have criteria that my special candle fills, I know it doesn't look special but it is as it's the first one I've done, did I tell you that already. Well Passion for promarkers have a special challenge that you can enter as many times as you like as long as it uses promarkers, has a christmas theme and isn't a card, see 3 out of 3.

Roses on paper have a challenge similar in that they want something altered for a christmas gift so I can enter this challenge too.
Winter wonderland I had forgotten wanted you to decorate a candle or candle holder and I thought I would be doing a candle holder but I've managed a candle.

Stamp with fun and stampavie both have a christmas theme and though I've not made a card my candle is a christmas project and I do have a recipient in mind as a token gift so I think I can enter their christmas themes.
