Flower Fairies and fusion painting

Hi all, here's a couple of candles I made recently.
 I found a sheet of Flower fairy rub ons in my stash and thought I would use them on candles.
I looked each image up on the internet to see which flower fairy they were, this first one is a red clover fairy. So I used a painting technique to paint some red clover around her and a little bumble bee friend. Lastly I added glitter to the fairy's wings to give them a nice twinkle. Here's a couple of pics going around the candle.
  
 
 


 
The second one is a sweet pea fairy image, so using Sheena's Fusion technique, I painted sweet pea flowers and foliage around the candle, and not forgetting the glitter to the wings.  Here's a few pics around this candle.



 
I'm linking up with  this weeks Handmade Monday #83 . Its been a while since I joined in, but I have good intentions that I'm going to be a better blogger from now on.  
I'll be back later to catch up with the other lovely crafters and find out what they've been up to.
Thanks for looking.
Hugs Sue x
