Anything Goes w/ SweetStamps

Hello my sweet, sweet bloggers-
Hope you had an excellent weekend.  Sure does go by fast, eh?!?!
Well this weeks challenge at SweetStamps is:
Yes, you heard me….ANYTHING GOES.
So I knew that I had to step out of my card making zone for this challenge and I really hope you like it.
Here it is:
I have been wanting to try this for such a long time and I am so glad that I had the chance to, because I love the way it turned out!!  Yes, I will be doing this again.
It's a candle...Fresh Linen scented too, LOL!!
I stamped SweetStamps with Memento  Rich Cocoa, colored with my Copics and then trimmed.  Once trimmed, I placed the colored image on the candle.  I then place an overlapping piece of parchment paper of the image and candle and heat with heat gun.
Do NOT hold the heat gun in one place, keep moving it in a circular motion, until you see the tissue under the parchment paper turn shiny.

I decorated the bottom with pearls and bling, to give it style.
