Compendium of Curiosities challenge was Altered Metal Alcohol Inks from p.56 of Tim's book. I used Tim's On the Edge Townscape to cut my metal sheet. the background is a piece of designer paper. I stamped over the paper with the large flourish 1 stamp and also a background stamp from Stamp Zia. The sentiment is from the TH collection. I adhered one of the townscape houses over the building in the sentiment stamp to coordinate with the bottom of the card. Each of the houses was colored with a different alcohol ink. I even colored the brick walk. The windows are actually transparent in real life. I used sepia accents to give them some color and gloss. I used one of Tim's keys and highlighted the "ART" of heart with pearl alcohol ink to go with the sentiment. I was in a kind of playful mood today. I sure had fun putting this card together.
