Faux Cloisonne!

A very simple, yet elegant technique made using heat embossing colored images found in catalogs and magazines received in the daily mail!

According to the definition by Merriam Webster, cloisonne is the past participle of the French word cloisonner, to partition.  It is relating to or being a style of enamel decoration in which the enamel is applied and fired in raised cells (as of soldered wires) on a usually metal background.  When my mother and I traveled to China in 2006, we visited a cloisonne factory where they were creating everything from simple animal figurines to elaborate vases and plates.  I was fascinated with the art form and am glad there is a simple way to create the technique for cards and other paper crafts.
