Compendium of Curiosities Challenges #31

Compendium of Curiosities Challenges #31
Rusted Enamel

This technique can be found on page 41 of the Tim Holtz book "Compendium of Curiosities" (buy it here).

and away we go....we are on Challenge number 31 on the blog of the Lovely Linda, Studio L3, ...I still find that hard to believe. It's been a lot of fun and has forced me to stretch my crafting ingenuity. It's not over yet tho, so lets see what I did this time.

I made a card for a friend using this technique.

Used Milled Lavendar DI, with Antique photo, one of Tims tickets, he didn't have one that said what I wanted so I painted over the word with white paint and hand wrote it, and a piece of his paper. Then there is the rosette made with his die, but scrap paper from my stash. The silver center is actually a bead/button my hubs found one day on his walk. Made the wire holder. Yarn from my stash and there ya have it. Tada!!!!
