Where'd that week go?......

Haven't been this behind with everything for ages but better get used to it I guess - the main thing that has been different this week is .......no school!! Amazing how two people who stay in bed all day disrupt your routine...

Still I digress. Have been busy crafting but somehow don't seem to have found any time to post. I am including this ATC 'Yellow Roses' which was another of my forays in to the world of image transfer.

The lady image has been done as a tape transfer and then 'taken down' by a layer of matt gel medium to take off the shine. This worked really well, but I have discovered yet another way to reduce the shine on a tape transfer - decide to heat emboss over the top. Didn't give it a thought, merrily applied heat to the ATC and was horrified to find the plastic surface all curling up and evaporatingleaving the image behind. Seriously I doubt this is a very reliable method and I think I was very lucky to be able to retrieve anything at all but beginner's luck I guess.
