Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #12

A quick tag for Compendium of Curiosities Challenge week 12. The technique is chipped enamel and I used it on the big metal letters and the small metal flowers in the layered flowers. I found I needed to be careful with my pieces or else I would chip it all off! My tag background is Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet and there is a faint flourish stamp (Stampers Anonymous) using Tea Dye Distress Ink also.

Whoopee! This is great!

I love the mottled background and layered flowers, but have to admit that I'm enamored with your text!

Did you punch the letters out of a Dymo strip? How freakin' cool are YOU?

Wonderful tag, Penny! Cool technique, isn't it?

Penny, I love it! REALLY love it! Great job on the sweet chipped enamel flowers, and what a brilliant, ingenious way to do the lettering! Beautiful background, too, and such a wonderful sentiment. I would put this in a shadowbox frame and hang it in my living room! It's wonderful!
