ALUMINUM FOIL on my CARD - it's not just for wrapping up food!

Good Morning all...
Happy HUMP DAY!! Two more days until the start of the weekend - Yay!
I am really excited to show you the card that I made yesterday. I think that it came out really nice and I want to share with you how it was done. I had recently purchased some Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and I wanted to get some more use out of them. I had watched his videos where he used them on metal and I loved the way it had come out on the project. I decided I wanted to try it, but after looking all thru my house for some metal, I came up empty.....but then it came to me....I have something that "sorta metal-like". What about ALUMINUM FOIL??? I wonder if that would work? And the card above is the results. It worked FANTASTICALLY!!!!

This morning, I attempted to make a video showing you how to make the card, but now I have to edit it. Making a Tutorial video is hard work....I didn't realize that. I forgot my tape, so I had to get up in the middle and get it, I fumbled over my words, short, I HAVE TO edit it. But what I have done is put the supply list below. If the video is really not so good, I will take screen shots of how I created the card with detailed instructions on the side. So, fingers crossed that it all works out...LOL!!

So, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you try this on your next project!
