I love all the entries so far! I was a bit hesitant to sign up, but decided I should. Wasn't planning on soaping, but it's been so long I just had to get my soaping gear out again! When I was choosing the design I thought I might as well try the current challenge. I HP'd which made it quite interesting, I'm not entirely sure the soap will actually look like a tiger stripe, but at least I tried[emoji854]

Wish I could “fail” like that!! Lol
I look at them, and find something wrong, so I just keep trying. It gets really bad if I have this certain look I want and I am not accomplishing it. This soap was one of those times. I wanted thinner lines but something kept happening. The soap on a stick, grabbing the wrong recipe with a substantial water discount, talking on the phone* and going crazy with the white, etc. So when I say "fail" its more about failure to accomplish what I have pictured in my head, than real failure. Not showing the soap on a stick one... now that was a failure. The funny thing is I used a scent recommended by some of the long time members here, but forgot the warning given along with the recommendation. I was laughing like a loon when I found my notes "DeeAnna and Shari say it accelerates, so have the mold ready, but its a great FO for men" Let it be known that the husband has the soap on a stick on his cure pile, and cant wait to use it. The scent is Cracklin Birch by NG. So lovely, but a bit complicated lol. <3

*The phone was on speaker and it was a call I could not postpone. Dont want the safety police after me!

And there's still 2 more days to enter! Such gorgeous entries already. I expect there will be more. I am still working on attempts to improve on mine.

There are SO MANY beautiful tiger stripes! I almost didn't post mine because I'm so unhappy with it but decided, what the heck. Voting is going to be so TOUGH! Well done, everyone!:thumbs:

Thank you Primrose! But it's for a baby girl shower which is why I'm so annoyed, lol. Your hint of blue is honestly a stroke of genius. It would have been great without it but that just made it pop off the screen. Well done!

Coming from you, KiwiMoose, that's high praise indeed! Your purple and black is spectacular. Honestly, I keep looking at it and wonder why I haven't thought of doing the same before. I just might steal your color combo for a future soap!
