Evening peeps ......will it never stop raining, its pouring it down again here again, and it feels like winter rather than late Summer lets hope we get a nice September, fingers crossed, I made this tag following the challenge over at Lindas, this week it'is Blended Batik.....never done this before or come to think of it I had never heard of it so I started this tag late Monday evening after getting back from the class I did at LB Crafts, hence the added metal arch....now there is a story as to why I had some metal left over as after cutting out the piece I needed for the arch it disappeared.....could I find it.... no, Lynne had a look, emptied out the rubbish bag, looked on the floor......and after we had given up looking and I did it again...there it was under my handbag how it got there is beyond me. Oh well I got to do it again and add it my tag I added a metallic embellishment which I coloured the centre with alchohol inks.....as I've said before I struggle with removing the colour from the metal that is raised, I end up taking off more colour than needed.....so I did this with a cotton wool bud, so much easier even if its not quite how I should do it. The flower was stamped with the caligraphy stamp that I used for the background tag.......I sneeked downstairs to use the iron (see technique in book) I felt guilty as my hubby had done the ironing whilst I was at class that day...what a sweetie.
