Triple Play Challenge!

We are now at the 12th week of the Compendium of Curiosities over at Studio L3. Linda had us open our books to page 44 to do Chipped Enamel! Now I will say that I was not real enthused to do this one, because I did not think "the process" was very attractive. Once I actually did it, I liked the look! Now my color selection was limited, so I made do with what I had. Thanks again Linda for the push to go through each and every technique in the book! You are awesome!!!

Simon Says Stamp and Show wants layers this week, so I layered some paper, which was die cut on the top and bottom with TH "On the Edge." I think the flowers also count as layers along with the butterflies! The designer paper is from Tim Holtz "Lost and Found."

Louise at Tag Tuesday is looking for butterflies this week. I used the three step process of Kitchen Sink Stamps and then clear embossed to kind of blend in with the Chipped Enamel. BTW, this is the first time I did these butterflies and the finished pieces are quite nice! No one really likes to cut out items, but I wanted extra "Layers." All was finished off with my favorite embellishment - Pearls!
Sure hope all of you are having a wonderful week! Thanks so much for the visit!
