Compendium of Curiosities Challenge- week 12

Here we are again having fun at Linda's Studio L3. This week it is all about chipped enamel. I like how the embossing powder works on metal and I happen to have a lot of metal pieces in my stash. I just have to stop burning my fingers. I have used a pieces of corrugated cardboard with some of the top paper removed, for the background. I used Distress crackle paints picket fence and broken china. I stamped over it with SU stamp French Flair. I used worn lipstick, old paper, antique linen and broken china Distress embossing powders to emboss my metal pieces. My scanner wasn't liking this piece at all. Thank you for looking! I hope you get to play at L3 studio this week!
