Diet Coke Meets Chipped Enamel

Interesting title huh....

Well I made this for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Series - Chipped Enamel on page 44 of Tim's fabulous book!



I made the sign and the flourish in the upper right hand corner using the technique AND a diet coke can (don't worry the Diet Coke can did not suffer during the making of this art - it was already empty and clean)! Tim's Sizzix dies cut through Diet Coke Cans like they are butter!!!

Close up of the metal sign:

I used alcohol ink (Ginger) to color Tim's Tissue Tape.

Hope you like the card - Life... It's all perspective (isn't that true)!

Happy Creating!

KAT

The Stuff - it's all Tim's (distress inks, Sizzix, tissue tape, stamps)- Oh and the Diet Coke can!

Oh, I love this! What a beautiful work of art, Kat. You did a fabulous job with the chipped enamel technique (brilliant way to put that empty soda can to good use!) and your stamping is great. I love the little bird perched on her sign, watching her friends in that lovely sky. Cool use of the tissue tape and ticket, and the little flourish up top ties it all together perfectly.

You have an amazing eye for design! I'm really looking forward to admiring more of your work!
