Stampscape Candle Holders


Good Morning Bloggers 
I wanted to share a project I have been working on for the last few days. Here are a couple of candle holders my father made from  leftover projects. Mom wanted a Stampscape scene on them so I stamped a scene on all four sides. Then painted them with Distress ink and a aqua pen. The scene is interchangeable depending on how you set the blocks together. 
 I still have spray them with a clear coat and then they are ready.                                                                                                                                          ~ENJOY!

  8. Deanna, these are just adorable, please explain to me how you made the water blue--I tried distressing ink which I use a lot for distressing, but you say you painted them with distressing ink I couldn't get it to show good what is a AQUA PEN just a colored pen? Please help with details, I want to do these for a dear dear friend's birthday Jan 31st 2014, thanks, Marilyn Coleman ( email: antmudd@aol.com)

  9. Hi Marilyn, I am so sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I used a Aqua pen which is a hollow tube brush that you fill with water. I used a medium size and broken china to paint it in first. I then used Distress makers and built up the color with all the blues and then highlighted with a white gel pen. rubbed the gel pen off with a q tip to create the depth. I then took water on a fine brush and blended all the colors let it dry over night. Once I achieved the desired color I sprayed it with a watercolor sealer. I went back in with a gel pen to create waves and reflections and then sprayed it again. I hope this helps you. It is a lot of work I know but it is really worth all the extra time. God Bless and Good Luck
