The technique of using alcohol inks to alter metal is this week's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge. You can see all the details on page 56 of Tim's book. I realized that a book project I was working on to teach for a class at my local rubber stamp store, Your Maine Stamper in Winthrop, ME used the technique on the cover so thought I'd use it for this week's challenge entry. Since it is a book, I of course couldn't resist showing you the inside! The structure is a double accordion made from two 24" folded long paper pieces sewn together in 4 of the folds with a 3-hole pamphlet stitch. By cutting windows in one accordion, it allowed me to stamp quotes on the back accordion and give the piece very cool dimension.
If you smoosh it, you can see all the stamping better. I also played with a metallic silver StazOn pad to do all the stamping onto the black cardstock - very vibrant effect with that ink.
