Cloisonne un-caged


I tried a new technique called faux cloisonne, inspired by a challenge, and this is the result.  I love it, so rich and exotic looking.  I sprinkled some embossing powder on the bg and heated it before I added the cage although it hardly shows in the photograph it looks subtle (see in the detail shot).

Cage stamp: Tim Holtz

Sentiment stamp: Tim Holtz

Bg pierced die: MFT
