COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES - WEEK 11


Hi,

Its another exciting adventure for me as this week the fab Linda of Studio L3 has chosen Page 36 of C of C which is Blended Batik.... sponsored by Eclectic Paperie. I for one had never heard of this technique before, so woo woo I thought, brilliant, lets give it a go. Obviously we are not allowed to disclose the techniques, BUT, I will tell you a domestic appliance I had not picked up in over 6 months had to be used and my husband nearly passed out in shock when he saw me using it..............lol

My Huge Flower (it wasn't mean't to be that big) was made from cardstock and fabric Rose Petals which I inked and stamped, and the Bronze Plate which the bird is perched on is a Bronze Metal Garden Tag which has been embossed and inked with one of Tim Holtz folders.

If you get the chance please visit Linda at Studio L3 and see some brilliant examples of this technique from some great crafters.

I am also entering this tag for Hels Sunday Stampers which by chance is Flowers!!!!

Thank you for popping in and for your wonderful support. I hope you like my tag as it was great fun making it. Annette x
