Candles! (Tell me if I am boring you!)

Confession time - I've got a bit addicted to decorating candles! All have been stamped onto tissue paper in versafine ink and coloured with Zig real brush pens. The first one was my first attempt before I found out about using greaseproof to stop it from melting and dripping everywhere! It is a Lesia Zgharda stamp.
 Next is the gorgeous Happy Cat from Crafty Individuals, this time as a grey cat.
 The Hobby Art little owl also fits nicely onto a 15cm candle.
I had a special request for some Westie candles, so I bought this hunkydory stamp, and made two which sold immediately. This was a vanilla scented candle from the range, measuring about 12 cm.
 Here is another Crafty individuals stamp. Jean Hardy inspired me to use this one and will be on Hochanda demoing this on Tuesday 3rd December at 12pm and 4pm. Do tune in and check out their fabulous stamps! For those of you on Facebook there is also a new private group for fans of Crafty Individuals products where we can share our lovely crafty makes.
Finally, here is the Pink Ink Hare on a 20cm candle with a few tiny drops of liquid pearls.
If you fancy having a go, I can recommend IKEA and the Range for candles.
Thanks for looking!

I have never tried this myself but you have inspired me to give it a go Sally seeing your fabulous results, and I think my favourites would be both the Autumn abd Christmas foliage followed by the sweet cat. x

They are all fabulous!

What is grease proof? I plan to try making some candles this year and it sounds like I need to know to use this...
