Book Study - Rusted Enamel

Continuing with our Book Study of Tim Holtz's book " A Compendium of Curiosities" on NGS group. This week we're looking at the section "Rusted Enamel". Ink a tag or card with your choice of color Distress Ink, directly from the pad. Completely cover the card with ink. While the ink is still wet, apply clear embossing powder over the entire card. Then turn the tag over, firmly flick the back to knock some of the embossing powder off the tag (not too much).
Heat the embossing powder with a heat tool until the powder first turns clear & shiny, then stop. Don't over heat. Let it cool.
Ink over the entire card with a brown colored Distress Ink using a blending tool. Work the ink into all the crevices. Then wipe off the excess ink with a cloth or paper towel.
Love the look of this, pretty quick and simple. Tim says if you want to stamp over this rusted enamel be sure to use permanent ink.
