CC2 #15: Enameled Brilliance!

Wow! This week at Linda's Studio L3, we have been assigned Page #56 from Tim's 2nd Compendium, Enameled Metals.  How too cool is this one??!!!

Of course I knew I had bought a pack of the metal foil tape when I was Absolutely Everything for Tims's weekend of classes.  I just couldn't find it.  That lead to an extreme clean-up of my "right-side" desk.  And not just one...but three! packs did I eventually come up with! Yeah me!

As you know, you need to reference the techique from Tim himself, but let me just say..you need to! I was not expecting the results I got. I went with the Sizzix Basic Gray texture folder that Julie found at the Springfield stamps show, which matched the Sizzlet die she had gotten me for Christmas (I have such a pear thing!) I actually like the plain one, and while I didn't know what I would do with it, I didn't want to risk ruining it either! LOL!

But, man I'm glad I did.  I had picked out the paper colors when the metal was still wet, and as I was using scraps, I wasn't thrilled with the match, but then after the 2nd to last step, they seem to go perfectly! Who knew?  I have visions of great Christmas Cards with this one.

So there is still time; grab your copy of he Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 and get enameling!!
