Alter something with wings!

This week over at Try it on Tuesday we would like you to alter something and  include wings. I think that offers quite a bit of scope and variety.
I decided to try altering a candle. I have had a go at this once before but it was quite a while ago and that  time I used an iron to transfer the image.  This time around I decided to use my heat tool and preferred this way.
Here it is

I stamped one of Sheena Douglass's stamps onto tissue paper using Momento ink and coloured the image with copics. I cut around the image, laid it onto the candle and wrapped greaseproof paper tightly around the candle to keep the image in place.  I heated the image through the greaseproof until I saw the image come through the paper.I removed the greaseproof and voila there it is.  This technique give you the same excitement that watching embossing powder change does!

We'd be so pleased if you decide to join us for the challenge this week, so if you need a little inspiration please visit the TioT challenge blog and see what the DT have created.
Have a good day.

    Your candle turned out beautifully.
