Tuesday Taggers

Hello everyone. Just back from a trip to Jacks school to enjoy the winter fayre. After spending the last few days making goodies for it, I wanted to enjoy the fun too, lol! Yesterday I spent 3 hours in the kitchen making fairy cakes for the home baking stall...Face cloth cupcakes the other day....and, yesterday, some Christmas candles.

For these, I used a Penny Black stamp from the Christmas Critters clear stamp set. I stamped the image onto tissue paper and coloured with a mix of watercolour and inktense pencils. Next, I cut round the image, placed on candle and wrapped in some white baking sheet...then heat embossed it till the colour changed. I added some stickles, wrapped in clear cellophane and added some christmas parcel ribbon.

Made four for the school fayre and also made three for Wee Steven to give his nursery teachers at the end of term.
I am entering these into Tuesday Taggers challenge where the theme this week is 'Festival of Light'.

Hope you like them and thanks for taking the time to look.
