CCC #12 - Chipped Enamel


This weeks technique for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge is way cool!!!  I totally love the results.  Linda has all the information on her blog Studio L3.  Amazingly I've only used one stamp on this tag (across the top and bottom) and it is a Tim Holtz image... stamped with Archival ink coffee.  Distress ink colors used are spun sugar, aged mahogany, mustard seed, shabby shutters and just a hint of black soot around the edges.

Really like the way you did your enamel flowers and like that TH stamp too. It works so well on the tag! :) Nan

Wanda, I love your results, too! This is absolutely gorgeous! Everything about it is wonderful-- the colors, the lacy stamp, the cool flowers-- and your chipped enamel technique is PERFECT! You created such a great look; it's distressed elegance at its best. This is a really special work of art!

looks wonderful. It always amazes me when I'm creating stuff and when finished realized I usually only used one stamp and that would be my quote. Weird.
