Faux Enamel Postcard Mugs


Today I'm sharing a little bit of the Christmas Spirit with you.
I'm such a big fan of all enamel things out there and all postcard related items so I had so much fun creating these faux enamel mugs.
I created the enamel look with special paint for ceramics and made some digital collages that would look like postcards. I printed them on decals and applied them on the mugs.
I included fun details in my collages, like the actual coordinates from North Pole, Alaska, the last place Santa was spotted, his address, email and a toll free no to call him! :)
Perfect gifts for Christmas, right?

UPDATE:
Unfortunately the paint used to create the faux enamel look is not food safe,
so the objects decorated with this type of paint can only be used as decorative objects.
But this ''chippy faux enamel'' looks so good! Now we just have to find any other objects that can be decorated like this.
What would you choose to decorate using this method?
