Candle jar

Hello my friends! It started to snow this week. Everything is so nice and white. 
I absolutely love SNS Glittered Ornaments but I haven't found any glass ornaments to decorate. I thought that maybe I can use the same technique to make a sparkling candle jar. It worked perfectly. 

I used SNS Ornament Glue to cover inside of the jar with glue. After the excess glue was trip out I placed the Carnation Glitter to the bottom part of the jar and covered rest of the jar with slightly lighter glitter - Bubble Gum. Both of these glitters are semi-transparent so the candle light can show through. 
At first I was worried how the glitter will react with candle light. I was afraid that it can go sooty but after burning several Tea Light Candles in there it is  still perfect :)

The jar lid was originally black. I covered it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Detail EP. I used several layers to hide the black completely. The word 'Wish' is stamped with stamp from Flurishes 2 set and Versamark ink. It is heat embossed with Cotton Candy EP. Best thing about this EP is that it contains a shimmer powder. The shimmer will melt to the White EP and it won't rub off. I also used the same ink and EP to make a circle rip on top of the lid.

The jar looks really nice on the inside as well. Maybe I'll try to cover next jar from the outside to see what will happen. 

Materials used: 
Stamp Credits: Flourishes Two stamp set #520
