Love this! Will you tell how you stamped/colored the candle inside the lantern? Thanks!

Jen Rubio said...

THANKS everyone! Patty, I stamped the candle image inside with Juniper ink, then stamped the little "light bursting" stamp over top of the wick of the candle with Creme Brulee ink. Then colored in the open center of the "light bursting" stamp with a Creme Brulee marker. The marker I used was one of our new alcohol inks markers, so if you use that kind too, make sure you've use "archival black" ink to stamp the the lantern so it won't run/smear/bleed when you use the marker with it. Hope that helps! Thanks for asking :)
