Cloisonné Heart

Wow – I didn’t realize how late it was!  I spent most of the day in my stamp room, working on ideas for tomorrow’s class.  One of the techniques we’ll work with is “Cloisonné.”  I made flowers, butterflies, several teacups and this heart.  Isn’t that pretty?  It’s actually stamped on a recipe image. I think it was chicken, but it works perfectly with this image.

Here’s the full card –

Stamp set:  Always; Ink:  Early Espresso classic, Versamark; Paper:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade; Other:  Embossing Folders – Vintage Wallpaper, Square Lattice; gold embossing powder, Beautiful Wings embosslit, ticket corner punch, crystal effects, modern label punch, scallop edge border punch, brads – neutrals, Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon, stampin’ dimensionals, mini glue dots, paper piercing tool, mat pack

The butterfly doesn’t really qualify for cloisonné, I guess, because it’s just cut from a magazine page with the Beautiful Wings sizzlet and covered with Crystal Effects.

I’ve got to hit the sack.  I’ll show you some more of the cloisonné cards tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!
