Hi my friends. I think with all the cold we've been having even my creative cells are frozen! I've been stuck in no mojo land. I'm teaching a class tomorrow and all three cards are at least partially CASED.
However, I did stamp something today that I'm pretty pleased with. I've been seeing creations made using techniques from Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities book. I know Tim's style is quite different from my normal style, but I'm still intrigued by everything he creates. I received his book for Christmas, and today was the first time I actually attempted to do one of the techniques.
There is a weekly challenge using a challenge from the book put out by Linda at StudioL3. So this is my entry for this week. You can click on the photos for a closer look.
The technique is called rusted enamel and is found on page 41 of Tim's book. The background piece is a brayered embossing folder. I had a piece left from another project that didn't get used. I embossed a flourish in clear over the rusted enamel. It shows up better in the 2nd photo.
The butterfly is die cut from plastic packaging, inked with alcohol inks and layered on black. I made some paper beads that I colored with Copic markers and then glazed.
Thanks so much for visiting today. Be blessed.
