Altered Enamel Mug by Patricia Basson

Hello to everybody!

Today I want to showcase an altered Enamel Mug that I created for the Zeus and Zoe blog using products from Marivic Clifton's Etsy Shop... 

I punched a piece of patterned paper to fit around the outside and inside of the mug.. Using the Purple pleated ribbon from my DT stash and a length of the left over from the crotchet Doily from my previous project, I gave the mug a little skirt.

I used some more of my Vintage Buttons and Butterfly elements as added interest. 

From the package of papers and envelopes from Industrial Chic by Susan Lenart Kazmer, I used some envelopes, crumpled them and rubbed clear embossing ink on the creases. I used Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel on it. I placed a few of the papers in the envelope and crammed it with my tiny crammer...

Also added a Stick Pin with a Butterfly ornament behind my Pansy Flower from my own stash.

I misted my paper with Mountain Lavender Gold  Starburst from Lindy's  and splattered Sea Mint Green and Tea Pot Purple on the paper. With texture paste I masked some Butterflies and embossed them with Mauve embossing powder from Lindy's Stampgang...Also added some purple half pearls on the punched flowers.

Some more of Marivic's vintage Buttons, and also a peek of the small crochet Doily placed behind my flower.

Please take some time to visit the Zeus and Zoe Etsy Shop for many Vintage products, or ask Marivic to assemble a tailor made kit for you!

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam,
And for a brief moment,
its glory and beauty belong to our world...
But then it flies again,
and though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.
