Compendium of Curiosites Vol.2 Challenge#2

Week 2 at CC2C and you'll find the challenge technique on page 58 - Faux Patina.  I tried it out on the metal pieces that I created by using a frame embossing folder on a piece of metal and then cutting the pieces out.  I collaged them onto my backgrounds that were left over scraps from other projects - one piece sprayed with Adirondack colorwash and the other uses distress inks for a wrinkle free distress background along with a text stamp.

Beautiful work, Penny! What a great approach, using the embossed metal as a frame. The entire composition is lovely, and the colors are vintage perfection!

A gorgeous piece of work Penny - the colours are beautiful. I can't take part this week unfortunately as I can't get hold of any of the snow cap mixative!

It is so beautiful when you marry up a vintage image with vibrant colours - it works so beautifully.
