Hello everyone! Wow, week 31 already at Linda's Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Challenge. It is very sad we are almost done! She promises something just as exciting will start up, but hasn't leaked any details.
This week, we are on page 41, Rusted Enamel. And let me just say...how very cool! Never would have thought of this in a million years!! Now, my first piece (above) had a much more rusted look. Not sure why, as I really like it.
The pieces I tried last night only had the bearest amount of "rusting". But, it does look very "leathery" . This card is for my Step-son's birthday. I used the sage DI, which came out very green (I found it doesn't work so well on regular paper, so I cut the baroque label out of old manila folders) which might account to the color shift. The feathers were a challenge; more so as while I was working, my pup Dakota had managed to grab a bag of the smaller feathers and had them shrewn all over the newly cleaned carpet!!! It's a good thing she's cute; otherwise she could likely be dead! LOL! The two valentines ones aren't done yet, I'll try to get them on later this weekend.
The background is from the "Vintage" pack from Core'dinations paper. I love this stuff; sanded and frayed; I can't wait for the new Adirondack and and Distress matching colors to become available! Well, best get back to work! I hope everyone has a great crafty weekend!
