Enameled Stamping

8 p.m. MTD tonight is the deadline for the latest StudioL3 challenge from Tim's 2nd Compendium book - Enameled Stamping and it's explained on p. 44.  I opted for fall colors and a Halloween theme.  The owl piece features the technique, the rest is just ad libbed.  Spider webs were embossed, gone over with white ink and glitter, some stamping done using pigment inks, how about a bit of blood dripping across the top of the tag?  It's hard to see but IRL it looks real!
