Well, with 10 days to go before Tim does his next tag, I have managed to get mine together!
I do have some of Tim's remnant rub offs, but opted for some old real Letraset from days gone by...oh the things we hoard from our student days...they are so old, they did not rub down well, but looks good as a background here.
I opted for gears instead of butterflies which kind of reminds me of a song I used to sing a lot and this is the chorus:
Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
As the images unwind, like the circles that you find in
The windmills of your mind!
My first try was a complete wash out...but would have been good to die cut the butterflies if I had the die as the colour took over and there was no resist at all...so then I tried again and it was better, only I was left with a lot of the alcohol blending solution on my stencil and tried using it to make a print and guess what? It WORKED perfectly! Though I decided not to use it for this tag, I will use it as a background for something else which can be seen below.
It was really great to learn another technique, I will add this to my CC101 and CC103 tag ring of sample techniques for when I am stumped for ideas.
