I've wanted to have a go at something using metal and alcohol inks so the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week ('show some metal') was the perfect opportunity.
I started off cutting 4 squares of copper metal and embossing them with some Tim Holtz embossing folders. I coloured them with some alcohol inks - 2 with a single colour of ink and the other 2 with a mixture of the two colours, rubbing the colour off the raised parts of the embossed design. I mounted the four metal squares onto background paper and added an ideology book plate with the stamped word 'smile' (a paperartsy stamp).
I made this the right size to fit into one of these 3 inch box frames, but I haven't got one handy at the moment so it'll have to be on hold until I can get one. I'm thinking of painting it dark brown and distressing with gold / copper colours.
I'm also going to enter this in the Sunday Stampers this week which has the theme of words.
