The first challenge - Faux Batik
Friends of mine have been entering craft challenges and I thought I should have a go.. The traumatic thing was not the crafting but the setting of a blog to link it too. I seem to be nearly there but think I will have to call in some favours to understand templates and backgrounds more fully. Anyway I decided to try Grungy Monday 11 "Faux Batik" in a simple way after seeing something similar in the June 2011 "Craft Stamper".
I used Tumbled glass and Wild honey (rather a favourite of mine at the moment) to random cover some card then stamped over it with Fuschia pink Staz on. I was very pleased with the results and then used Tim's tattered florals to create the rose. K & Co Friends embellishments. Simple but sweet. Not quite Tim's technique but it feels like Faux batik.. better try his techinque next.
