Painting with Alcohol Inks

It's called "Ink Palette -- Alcohol Ink" on Linda's Compendium of Curiosities II this week. My square card features bright-colored "metal" flowers cut from both sizes of Tim's Tattered Florals dies.  Following Linda's lead, I used metal flashing tape to cover Grunge Paper (instead of Grungeboard) before die cutting and embossing in a Sizzix folder. Then I chose inks from the "bright" palette of alcohol inks to paint the flowers.  Adhesive pears and silver beads accent the centers.  The technique description is on page 52 of Tim's book, and "Funkie Junkie Boutique" is sponsoring this week's challenge.
