Tiger Stripe Soap Challenge

It's been quite a while since I last posted and I'm really sorry, it wasn't because I didn't want to, it's because Blogger just wouldn't let me, no matter what I tried it just wouldn't allow me to upload any photos, has anyone else had this problem?  Anyhow, I thought I'd give it one last try and hoo ray! it's finally working again.

It's come out a great time, because Amy from Great Cakes Soapworks is having another of her wonderful soap challenges and I just couldn't resist joining all the other lovely soapers this year.   The 1st challenge Amy has set for us is the Tiger Stripe technique, I haven't tried this particular one before, it's a little like the funnel or column technique, just slightly different, it's a really great technique to try.

I decided to use May Chang and Frankincense essential oils for this soap, I love pink and orange together so I thought I'd use these colours.  I was a bit worried it would turn out, it seemed to take forever to start to trace and I got a bit impatient waiting and poured earlier than I normally would, so I'm quite happy and very relieved with the result.  Thank you Amy for doing your challenge for another year:)
