Today's post: A label from a vintage box of Sunflower brand licorice is brought to you by the Studio L3 Compendium challenge.
This finished piece is a bit of fun, but I'll admit that Mr. Holtzs' Shabby Chic technique doesn't thrill me. The finished items, at least those I've seen from everyone else, seem very chic and interesting.
Of course, there have been a few difficulties on my creation. It seems many of you also had my first problem: I just couldn't get it to work.
Finally I got the concept to work, more or less, and realized that I really, really like embossed images. A lot.
Covering them in goo and gunk therefore removing much of the shine factor ... yuck.
As mentioned, though I ended up liking this card, so I bet you find me working with this technique again (practice makes perfect, right?).
Make sure you stop by Linda's blog to join in this week's challenge and again on Monday to find out about challenge five.
