Hero Arts’ Silhouette Grass stamp was perfect for stamping on this six-inch pillar candle, or I should say, stamping on the tissue paper that was applied to the candle. A pictorial and video explaining this technique can be found here at Splitcoaststampers. To finish it, I wrapped a length jute around the bottom, using straight pins, which pushed easily into the candle, to hold the ends.

The other items in the photo are treasures – the picture that features a favorite quote from Maya Angelou and the bird’s nest that once held babies in a bush right outside the front door of our house. As it’s been 13 years since we moved from that house, the nest is pretty old. I took a stab at making the eggs with Sculpey clay.
It has been a great day so far. Tonight, I’m going to do a few chores and then see if I can’t make a little magic in my corner. Enjoy the evening, and thank you so much for stopping by!
