CCC #31 - Rusted Enamel
Rusted Enamel is a very cool technique!!! It has been awesome working through Tim Holtz's book Compendium of Curiosities... I've learned soooooooooooo much... and to think there are just a few weeks (techniques) left to do. As always, pop on over to Linda's blog Studio L3 to get all the details on the challenge.
My Distress ink colors used on the tag are worn lipstick, tea dye, and brushed corduroy. The flourish is stamped with Archival olive. The bottom cut with an On-the-edge die. The flowers are cut from white felt, sprayed with Color Wash cranberry and then Perfect Pearls forever violet, dried, sprayed again with violet and dried. Amazingly the shimmer of the Perfect Pearls Mist does not stand out on the felt like it does on paper and grunge. I then ran a bead of Rock Candy Distress Stickles around the edge of each flower and let it air dry. I then realized that I was going to stamp on the flowers and had forgot so I stamped a text image on them. Cut the ticket from a piece of Tim's Vintage Shabby paper, stamped the Valentine's ticket with Archival jet black, added a little worn lipstick and then black soot ink around the edges, and went over the "14" with glaze pens.
