Anniversary Candle

Good morning.  Welcome to day 2 of JustRite Stampers Release.  Today's stamp set is called "Vintage Oval Labels".  This stamp set comes in cling which I am really liking.  It stamps really nice!  This cling set is GORGEOUS!!  I'm not much of a "vintage" type of girl but I really like this set.

I was lucky enough to find some pillar candles at The Christmas Tree Shop on clearance for .50 just after Christmas.  I bought several to have on hand.  This is what my candle looked like when I bought it.

And this is what it looks like now:

I decided to make an Anniversary Candle.  This was one of those ideas that hit me right in the middle of the night - woke me up out of a sound sleep!!  I forced myself to go back to sleep but started on it as soon as I woke up.  I love decorating candles - I've done many as gifts for family and friends.  I think it just adds so much character and personality to a plain ole candle.

I used the 2 largest pieces in this set - the bottom layer is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and diecut with Spellbinders Labels 13 and the top layer is stamped with Memento Desert Sand and diecut with Spellbinders Labels 6.  This set was designed to go perfectly with these Spellbinders dies - can't get much better than that!!  The sentiment is from the "Happy Everything Mini Tag Set", stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and diecut with Spellbinders Petite Ovals and matted onto Petite Scallop Ovals (another perfect match!)

The lace that I used was white so I airbrushed it with Copic markers so that it would match my Vintage look.  I also airbrushed the flowers as well as the ribbon (they were all white). 

Here is a look at the complete "Vintage Oval Labels" cling set
