Family Time Rusted Enamel CCC #31

I'm finally getting back to some of the challenge blogs I've enjoyed.  This one is for StudioL3's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #31 -- Rusted Enamel.  I'm getting this one in just under the wire--but important to note that I made it...whew!  I'd been thinking about the phrase, "Time with Family is a beautiful thing", and had the idea of the butterfly wings with a timepiece...with "Family" as the key word, and came up with this tag.  So a play on words, if you will (though I used a different saying on the tag...hmmm).  I followed Tim Holtz' technique on page 41 of his book Compendium of Curiosities for the grunge heart, and used Turquoise Perfect Pearls on the butterfly wings and "Family", and added Cranberry Alcohol ink to the time piece (noting the 1 & 4 for the numbers)...yeah...still sappy for Valentines day!  =)

I'll be putting the rest of my Valentine's gifties up tomorrow--can't let the hubster see what I made just yet.  Until then...have a lovelee day!  TFL, Lisa


  1. Lisa, I'm so happy you were able to join in for the CCC this week! what a fabulous tag you've created, too. The Rusted Enamel looks gorgeous on the heart, and the pretty pop of turquoise is a wonderful accent on the butterfly wings. Great sentiment, too!

  2. Lisa, fabulous tag! I really like the embossing on the heart.

  3. This is so pretty, thank you!
