Altered candle - Additional idea!

I wrote a little tutorial for altered candles using promarkers and aqua markers over on Letraset's new blog a couple of weeks back and I'll show you a further idea using the same technique.

If you pop over to the original tutorial HERE and scroll to the 5th picture of the text stamp.  I have used a stamp by Stampendous Z-M173 Wish you joy available HERE and Aqua markers in fern green and raspberry and the metallic gold promarker available here or at your regular stockist. (I used the metallic gold promarker as I don't have the gold aquamarker)

Simply use long white candles and candle holders (from Ikea) attach the wording and stars as shown in the original tutorial, add a couple of sticky gems and ribbon to the base and you've got a really quick gift set that won't set you back particularly if you live near Ikea!
