http://studiol3.blogspot.com/ and Linda has set us another technique challenge. This time we have to visit Tim Holtlz blog here to find out all the details of the technique we are to explore..
I did the layer of the card ,coloured with stormy sky, tumbled glass and broken china distress ink, following the instructions found in the post on his blog way back in 2008. I had great fun when I got to the stage of ironing the paper. [you will have to follow the link to see this bit]. Good job it was the craft iron I had to use, the household one is only let out of the cupboard on high days and holidays.
Other colours used were, mustard seed and black soot.
The stamps were Darkroon Door and Crafty Individuals. Other layers of torn paper from my stash as are the rest of the bits and pieces.

Great background with the batik look. I don't even have a craft iron, I use my teeny tiny quilting iron, as my regular iron doesn't get much use either!ReplyDelete
