Faux Cloisonne

Evening folks, Happy Valentine's Day!
Were are half way through the month of February, so it's time for a new challenge at Perfectly CAS.
Here's my take on this month's cue card.

The ladies over at CAS Mix-Up would like to see Faux Cloisonne projects this month so I though that I would use that as my metallic element.

Cloisonne is the art of filling outlines of wire with enamel to decorate items, jewellery, vases etc. usually on a metal base, before firing to create a lasting design.
Think exquisite Faberge eggs, Russian silver, Chinese or Japanese vases and you get the idea.
Here's a cloisonne tea caddy that I found on Google that inspired my panel.

For my Faux Cloisonne, I used gold EP and metallic paints on black card.
The Macintosh Rose panel was stamped with Versamark on black card before heat embossing with gold EP. Once cooled, I added the colour using my metallic paints. Red for the flowers, green for the foliage and blue for the jewelled elements. The rest of the design I filled with a silvery white. Each cell created by the embossing was flooded with paint, just like the real thing!
Once I was happy with the panel, I cut it out and added it to a slimline, black card blank on pads. The sentiment from the same freebie set was stamped to match using gold EP.
So where will you go with our new theme? We'd love to see your takes in our gallery, but don't forget to keep them CAS.
There's more metallic inspiration from the DT over on the Perfectly CAS site.
