Compendium-of-Curiosities-Challenge week #12

Can it be week 12 already and we are about to celebrate Labor Day, the official end of of summer. Anyway....

Over at Linda's blog Studio L3 the art is just amazing as we all join in for week 12. This weeks challenge is Chipped Enamel. It took me a while to get the look I wanted but yet another Christmas card is ready to go. Let me know what you think.

  8. Stephen, I've been wondering where the time goes, too! I can't believe it's already September. But, you're way ahead of the game, getting your Christmas cards done, and you knocked this week's challenge out of the park!

    What a cool card!!!

    That little "Merry Christmas" piece with the chipped enamel looks amazing! Great use of that pretty DP and the tissue tape, and the snowman and snowflakes are awesome. This is a brilliant work of art, and whoever receives this in December is going to have their socks knocked off!

  9. ooh a bit early for Christmas for me.. but loving the card:))

  10. Hello Stephen,

    wow, from halloweentags to christmas cards ! You are fast ! LOL

    Nice card ! I really like your background : was this a backgroundpaper or did you work in layers ?
    Chipped enamel piece is my stuff too :) Nice blue and good combination with the brown text. Was this text on the metal piece or did you stamp it ?

    greetings from belgium
