Altered Metal Alcohol Inks
Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge has reached 33; sadly, we're nearing the end. This week, she has a wonderful collage of images and inked metal on her creation. (Altered Metal Alcohol Inks is found on page 56 of Tim's book.) I have a limited supply of metal pieces from Tim's line, but decided I wanted to do something a little different: 4 layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil and the Spellbinder die I can never get to work with cardstock! It worked well with the foil, and I chose not to punch out all the little pieces in the shape. It's backed with my favorite Vintage Shabby paper. The flower is a Prima one made of 'newsprint.' I inked it with the same colors as the metal and then spritzed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist.
