Gaze Upon the Glaze of Faux Enamel

Gaze upon the glaze of faux enamel!

Whilst continuing my love affair with counter top samples from Home Depot, I discovered this wonderful faux enamel technique.  It is not what I had set out to do, but I was very happy with the results!  How was this accomplished?  I started with painting the ‘wrong’ side of the sample with acrylic paint.  I stamped the trees and then dabbed dots of Stickles and glitter glue where the leaves would be.  Once it had thoroughly dried, I applied a layer of 3D Laquer. The trunks were highlighted with green Stickles.  The top ‘drops’ were created with the 3D Laquer and highlighted with Adirondack Mixatives in Copper.
Just add a ribbon, wire or yarn and you have a tag/ornament.
