Greetings from scorchingly hot Boise!
It's time to bust out that awesome Ranger Foil Tape and play with one of the most fun and unique techniques in the CC2: Enameled Metals! I had such a good time making this card, and realized in the process that I need to use the Foil Tape in my crafting a LOT more often. It's really cool stuff! I love the aged, banged-up look you get with this technique. Open your Compendium 2 to page 56, and behold the wonder of it all!
To participate in CC2C #15, create your own work of art using the Enameled Metals technique on page 56 and link it to this blog using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You're a rockstar as long as you honor these simple rules:
Follow the technique as it's written in A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2 (adding your own special flair, of course!), and clearly state that the technique comes from Tim's book.
Include a link to this post in your blog post (or photo description if you're linking from an online photo-sharing site).
Out of respect to Tim, please don't post the technique instructions on your blog! Any entries that don't follow this rule will be unlinked.
This challenge closes on Thursday, August 2 at 8 pm MTD. Please see the CC2C FAQ here for more information.
Thanks so much to everyone who's participating. Have a fantastic week!
P.S. If you don't have them on hand, you'll want to get a bottle of Picket Fence Distress Stain, Perfect Pearls Mist, Clear UTEE (and a Melting Pot!), some of Tim's Core'dinations paper, and Ranger Ink Refresher to add to your stash for upcoming challenges (not necessarily in that order). I'll try to let you guys know in plenty of time when a challenge is coming up that requires a specific product beyond the standard Tim Holtz stash items.
