High hopes under the sea

So things are still abit hectic here and I don't know if I am coming or going most days. I have managed to piece abit of time together and managed to join the guys over at High-hopes challenge blog. They would like to see anything but a card. So that means no cards allowed. After thinging about it for awhile I have decided to decorate a candle.
This is on one side of the candle. It has an under the sea theme as I like this kind if thing in the bathroom. In total there are 5 stamps from high hopes to create this candle. The images are on tissue paper and then coloured with copic pens. You need to use strong colours to make sure that the images have strong colours once applied. You can't see it on the picture but the pearl and the inside of the shell shimmer like real shell as it has Mica powders on it.
This is the back of the candle. I wish I had placed an image near the edge of the seam as it is alittle blank.

Really fun images and you are right about the bright colours they really make the images pop. Cant see the mica too well in the photo but you never can Do you just mix the mica with the ink or paint in on the image afterwards?
