Oak House Studio One Stamp Project

Hi everyone today I have made projects for the Oak House Studio One Stamp Project, using the Christmas Corner stamp from Oak House Studio.
The idea is to see how many different projects crafters come up with using just this one stamp for one day.
I decided to decorate a candle & make a wall hanging.
For the candle I first made sure how it would fit around the candle. I stamped onto tissue paper using black Archival. Coloured the image using watercolours.
I found it better to stamp each image seperately rather than trying to stamp all the images.
I applied the image to the candle, wrapped some greaseproof paper around the image, pulling it tight & making sure there are no creases. Then heated gently using my heat gun, moving it quickly across the image, so the image goes into the candle.
I repeated this until there were enough images to go around the candle. Doing them individuaally meant I could position each one equally.
For the wall hanging, i stamped the image out four times using versa mark, then applied some green embossing powder. Heated with the heat gun.
Carefully cut each image out.
Decided how I wanted them to be placed on the hessian.
Adhered the images onto the hessian, stamped a sentiment & placed this inbetween the images.
Backed the hessian, attached a ribbon for hanging.
There are some great projects over on the Oak House Studio blog - pop over & take a peek.
Don't forget my giveaway at the top of the page - some great papers to be won here.
