How cool is this???? I decided to be brave and work the aluminum again, and this embossed butterfly pin is the result. The two butterflies were cut with Stampin' Up!'s "Beautiful Butterflies" die, and I then embossed them with the "Finial Press" embossing folder. Even though the aluminum has a hearty thickness, it embosses beautifully and with ease! To color the aluminum, I used a couple of alcohol inks. Lastly, I used Stampin' Up!'s Sanding Block to see what effect it would have, and it really softened the ink coloring and enhanced the embossing.
