Too sweet isnt it? This is the tattered teddy stamped with chipped sapphire distress ink. My niece Skylar made this, she is 15, for my grandson Silas. It has his name and birthdate on it. I have been showing my sister in law and two nieces how to stamp on candles with tissue paper. They went out and bought all the stuff do it themselves lol. They fell in love with it, and the teen girls dont care for crafting. My niece Sophie even did a school project with this method. She had to do something on Mark Twain, she printed his picture and a quote she liked by him onto tissue paper and put it on a candle. Her teacher thought that was awesome. Yesterday Skylar made her daddy a candle with the logo for Tampa Bay Rays, he thought that was just the neatest thing ever. My sister in law even painted with acrylics on tissue paper. She made a christmas tree and put it on a sage and citrus candle, I didnt even know you could add this to a colored candle.
