Rusted enamel

This week's challenge on the Simon Says Stamp & show blog was to show a Lord Tim technique.  When I think of Tim's technique 'rusted enamel' it makes me remember previous antiquing trips, pawing through boxes of old graniteware cooking utensils.  I love the white with red trim and the beige with green trim.  And I have a few pieces of white with black trim but most of them are outside.  I've even seen a few white pieces with turquoise trim...hence my color choice for this technique.

Sizzix: mini key & keyhole dies, keyhole dies

Stamp (Jet Black archival ink) from Curiosities

Ranger:  Broken China, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain distress inks; Antique Bronze distress stickles, Latte, Ginger, Copper Mixative alcohol inks

Sophisticated Finishes:  Rust Antiquing Solution, Iron Metallic Surfacer (used on the lock - irl it really looks like an old rusty lock)

Miscellaneous:  screen scrap, ribbons, brads
