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.

Nice adaptation of that Spellbinders problem die! Who needs all the pieces punched out anyway?? LOL Love what you did to the prima flower. Denise B.
