Celestial Candle

Do you love candles? How about alcohol inks? How about combining both into a fun project? Well, then I have the perfect project for you today!

I started by taking a plain jane white candle and completely covering it with several shades of alcohol ink.

Next, apply a couple drops of Kurecolor Ink in Orange and Snow Cap Mixative to an applicator felt and apply to an acrylic star from the Basically Bare Bare Basics Celestial Set.

For this last step, you'll need to raid your pantry! Yes, the pantry. The moon shape, also from the Celestial Set, is covered completely in foil and then ran through a Cuttlebug for a bit of dry embossing. Carefully cover the raised portions of the moon with embossing ink, sprinkle with embossing powder, and then heat set the powder. I used WOW embossing glitter in Metallic Platinum Sparkle. It's a perfect match in color to the foil and also provides a fun texture to contrast to the smoothness of the foil.

For a last bit of embellishment, I added a metal sentiment and a few beads.
