DT Lynn: Challenge 36 - Thank You

Well it's Lynn here with a post for this week's Thank You Challenge.  
I sure had fun creating this week's project !!

I decided to make something totally different with my image this week and I'm thrilled with how it turned out.
I made a candle using the image FL3 which can be found here.
I made a matching tag to go with it:
It was a lot of fun and I learned a whole lot!

Here's the basic steps to creating a candle using a coloured digi image.

Step 1
Print your image on tissue paper.
Run taped tissue paper through your printer on some card stock for stability.
Make sure you tape it with masking tape to hold it in place.
Step 2
Colour your image; being careful not to press too hard or add too much wet ink to it, or the tissue paper will tear.
Step 3
Cut coloured image out and place on candle.
Step 4
Apply wax paper over the image and around the candle, holding tightly, and heat with your hair dryer or embossing tool (I used a hair dryer). Make sure you heat it enough that the white part of the tissue paper blends right into the candle, but not too much to melt the candle!!
And here's the final product...
Here's the tag and candle together:
Please note that the pansy on the tag is coloured in purple and yellow like the candle, but turned out quite BLUE in my photo.

I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this week at Fitztown in our Thank You challenge!!
