Hi - Another hand made gift!

Hi all - I have tried my hand at another hand made gift. I have never made a stamped candle before! I have hand painted one and that went well because I painted it all over.
Doing it this way I am not totally sure if it works or not and would appreciate your input.
I coloured my Tilda with Prismacolors on tissue. Heat set it with wax paper and all that went very well. My problem is that because the candle is round I wasn't sure how to decorate it........
As you can see I put flowers on one side of the image and bling on another. Please can you give me tips as to how to decide when it is a balanced design?

Here are some pictures:



I seriously am asking for input on this one - thank you to everyone who leaves me some!
Have a glorious Sunday!
Love, Candy

Oh how pretty! I think it's perfect just the way it is Candy. You did an amazing job getting the stamped image colored and applied.

Thanks for the instructions too. I love your idea of holding the image tightly to the candle with a sheet of wax paper!
