On to Day 1's post.
I will start off with a fun Halloween candle.

Waxy Deets
Images were inked with Black Staze On and stamped onto white tissue paper.
Tissue Paper should measure height and length of candle.
Markers were used to color in areas and to add eyes in windows.
Place finished tissue paper on candle.  Use heat gun to adhere tissue paper to melted wax.  Adhere tissue paper all around candle.
Stamps from set called House of Haunts, Stampin' Up! (retired).
Candle was purchased from Walmart, vanilla scented.

CIP - Crafty Inknik Prize!!
Want to win this awesome candle??
Leave a comment every day for 5 days about that day's post AND your favorite Halloween movie.  Yup, that is 5 different movies!  Your name will be entered into a drawing for this candle.
I will have a separate blog post on the 6th of October announcing the winner.

Have a great day and see you tomorrow...
