CCC #12 Chipped Enamel

Here we are with another fantastic technique from the Compendium of Curiosities book by Tim Holtz!
Having so much fun over at Linda's blog,  Studio L3, with these challenges!  
I used a variety of Tim's idea ology trinkets including the Ornate Plate, stencil letters and spinner.
The silver flowers were Memory Makers in a variety pack.
Black Distress embossing powder for this technique on the letters and daisy flower.
I also painted one of the metal flowers with Peeled Paint Distress Crackle paint.
The paper comes from Club Scrap's Great Outdoors and Paisley Collections.
The base green is DCWV and is embossed with a corrugated cardboard style embossing folder.  And I believe it was a Cuttlebug brand.
The script stamp is from Club Scrap's Collections kit.
I inked the edges of the papers with Adirondack Jet Black Archival ink.
The jewels are from my stash.
