Alcohol Ink Resist on Metal with Tim Holtz Texture Fades

Products Used:
Emboss using Craft Metal in your desired Tim Holtz Texture Fades
I used Meadow & Purple Twilight Alcohol inks
Using the Alcohol Ink Applicator tool and a piece of felt
insert the nib of the alchol ink into the felt and squeeze different
colors on different areas of the felt.
Stamped well inked tool over your embossed metal surface.
You may add or layer additional colors or use lots and blow gently
for a mottled effect.  Use Heat it Tool to dry ink.
This is what it looks like with the two colors I used
The final step in Alcohol Resist is taking the
 Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black swipe pad across the raised areas. 
This removes the alcohol ink and returns the raised parts to silver. 
NOTE:  This ONLY works with the Archival Ink.
 You may need to gently wipe the raised surfaces with a cloth.
The results are stunning and the colors are so bright!  I love
the New Texture Fades because they create a high detailed embossed
image into paper or metal.
