This week's CCC was found on page 44, Chipped Enamel. (This is the techinque I have used before.) I had fun playing with this one and created quite a few pieces.
Charlene and I are working on a door sign for our upcoming cruise with Tim and friends. I used the transfer technique for part of the sign (pictures will follow once we have completed the sign) and had so much fun with it, I kept right on going and created some ATC backgrounds.
I combined the chipped enamel pieces with one of the transferred image backgrounds to create this ATC:
For the "how to" on the flower and leaf you will have to check out page 44 of the Compendium of Curiosities. In the tutorial for the image transfer, Linda used a mini canvas (board), I just used a piece canvas cloth. When the background was completed and dried, the image was really faint. I liked the look much better when it was wet so after I stamped it, I spread a thin layer of Glossy Accents over the entire surface of the ATC to bring out the colors! (I used glossy accents to adhere the flower and leaf too!)
Like I said, I kept on going, in all I made 7 ATC backgrounds, but as of yet have only completed one other ATC. I treated this canvas with a little ink, a thin layer of Glossy Accents and some stitching.
