Altered Metal Goodness!

--OK, deep depression: only 2 more weeks to go in Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge. Yup, week #33. And I was kinda hoping to pull some stops out on this one, but Dakota got lose, found her down the road, and my muse is still either still out looking for her, or hiding from the paranoia/stress now everytime we put her out. Oh, its not just her, we also have her aunt Kiera for the week; 2 huskies howling around..yup, no hope for the muse here. So, here is what we have...
The back layer was painted with a Pearl Adirondack Dabber, then with regular black acrylic paint (DI Ink just didn't cover), then embossed with the cracked glass folder, and it was supposed to look like a cracked window when all was said and done, nevermind the over image is too big; it just sorta failed. I love the way the saying turned out; lettuce, butterscotch and lemonade AI's used here. And then the lemonade, meadow and wild plum on the metal bits. Really hard to tell with the photo. The stamp came from Onyxpressions. And with one day left in the week; it sums me up completely...throughly used up and worn out!! LOL! Hop on over to Linda's and check out the good examples of the Altered Metal Alcohol Inks from page 56. See ya next week!


  1. I love your background for this piece Kim and your beautiful inked charms. Brilliant words, loved those also. Annette x

  2. Its a super piece, the colours go beautifully together. Love the words and charms.

  3. Your background is lush and the metal plaque on top is fab. Great piece XOXO Zoe

  4. Love it all! Your background and that sentiment are fabulous! Wonderful card!

  5. Hi, Kim! goodness! Sounds like you've had quite a challenge completing your challenge this week - lol! Glad you found Dakota, safe and sound. Love the background - great color combo! And the metals look fabby, too! That is an awesome stamp - LOVE it!! :)

  6. Don't be depressed, Kim-- there's more fun coming!

    I'd say your muse is working beautifully-- this is an AWESOME card! Not only is the altered metal fabulous, that's one of the most amazing sentiments I've ever had the pleasure of reading! Now, THAT'S what I call a Mission Statement! I love the background, too-- it looks cool and a little gothic and very beautiful.

    I'm SO glad Dakota is okay! It's such an awful feeling when your animals get loose (I once had half my neighborhood chasing my cat, Stella, who eventually just strolled home like nothing had happened.


Thanks for stopping by! Your comments mean alot to me!
