Compendium Challenge Week 2: Faux Patina

Week two of Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosity 2 (By Tim Holtz) Challenge is Faux Patina. I still can't find my copy of Compendium but thankfully my memory-and a little help from Google- serves me well.  I have alcohol inks but I've been too scared to actually use them….until I was forced to on this project.  Now, I'm hooked.   I never liked the translucent look of the inks on metal but this technique makes it all opaque and gorgeous. 
The ribbons are seam binding that I "hand dyed" (more on that later).  

Laters Baby….

  4. Gorgeous work, Danee! I love the contrast of the beautiful Faux Patina-ed metal and the sparkly rhinestones. Beautiful background as well, and the ribbons are the icing on the cake!Thanks so much for joining the CC2C! I hope you find your Compendium soon!
