Alcohol Inks on Foil AED 17

Hello, my friends. Happy Saturday!
This week we have a fun challenge at Our Creative Corner 
hosted by Susan Butler and the theme is - Foil and Alcohol Inks.
Sue challenges us to make anything with alcohol inks on foil. 
It may be a free standing decoration, or an element to place
onto your project, experiment and have some fun.
 It is getting close to the silly season, so why not let go and free
all those inhibitions and let rip with some colour!

I love the effect of the alcohol ink on foil on the tag I made before.
This week I made a very simple but colorful work.
Here is my take on it. This is also my AED 17.
After embossed a piece of 4" X 4"  Creative Metal (the foil)
by Walnut Hollow, I dripped different color of alcohol inks on the foil.
Then used Tim Holtz Sanding Grip to rub the embossed area.
The piece of foil was placed on the frame that I bought at IKEA.
Is that simple and beautiful? Why don't you try it?And REMEBER
