here. I decided to go against my tendency to always want to scuff up metal and leave it alone.
I actually applied the alcohol ink direct from the nozzle, which I touched it to the heart for only a second or two. The ink came out in a small circle and looked like it would spill over but then self leveled into the beveled heart shape.
The handle I used Melody Ross's Chip Art Tool. I picked these tiny letters up cheap at Scrapbook Territory on clearance. I contemplated even trying the tools on the band because I've made attempts in the past to imprint the metal stamps into imitation leather with no results whatsoever. But this band, I actually could press the stamps with my thumb to get a nice indentation.
