This year’s 24 Tags of Christmas 2019 marches on with a painted candle in watercolor! I bought this stamp some time back and am finally getting it all inked up.
In the video I show how to paint the full background in case you decide to make a whole card, but I trimmed the candles down to more tag-size since the full image would have been way too big. Well, unless it’s tied to a new car. Coz, well, that needs scale. LOL. (Hear me, Santa?)
As with each tag day, I made four of them – so when I finish with all six videos, I’ll have 24 for the big giveaway!
To add the ribbon, I just punched two holes in it with an office hole puncher, threaded two sides of the ribbon through it, tied a knot. Then folded the ends of the ribbon in half and cut them at an angle to create the two points.

Beautiful the way the candle just glows… love this stamp and watching you paint. Blessings!
I adore this glowy background, so darn pretty
I love to watch you watercolor! Now if I had the courage to try it.
Love how you used a black bow to your tags. It made them even more elegant. Thank you for sharing with us.
Thank you, Sandy, for giving us beauty, inspiration, motivation, instruction and charming doses of reality. 🙂
How do you do that…..gorgeous! TFS
Admire your easy-going style using watercolor. The background is fantastic. The tags are awesome.
The candle series of tags set is awesome! Like the black bow and it really makes the candle pop! Wow, I also like how you show us how to do this step by step. So great to see the candlelight glow and how to do it! I wish I could do what you do, but I am still trying to get better. You make it look so darn easy! TFS and Merry Christmas!

Really amazing!! You are so talented thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!!
I don’t have the guts to drop those dark colors in because I always make mud. This is gorgeous!
Watching you work is one of my favorite “shows”. You are an inspiration and an educator. Thank you.
Watching you create is beautiful and inspiring. You make it seem possible for the non artists out there. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
Your tags are so fun to watch you create!
These watercolor candles are my favorite of your tags this year!
These remind me of an old traditional Christmas spent singing carols with the family. Love them!
You make all of your watercolouring projects look so beautiful Sandy. If I’d been able to create this as a card I’d have to send it as a card as I just wouldn’t have been able to cut away any part of it. The tags would indeed be a fit in themselves.
It is a treat to watch you watercolor!! So much talent!
Beautiful watercolor. I am so glad I found this series you are doing. Thank You
