New technique???

This is a terrible image because of the shiny panel,  You will have to trust me!  I am excited about a discovery that some of you have probably done a lot.  For a recycling piece I used the foil lid on a coffee can.  I intended to cut the Cuttlebug Thanks, but since the foil was thinner than cs, it did not cut.  Instead, it sort of embossed - looks a lot like what I call tin art that was popular a few years ago - using a nail to create tiny holes in metal.  I did sponge some black ink but it did not really fill in the word outline as I expected.  I also die cut the stars and the Spellbinder banner (border) from the coffee can foil.  This is another favorite color combo - black and white, this time with silver.  I was recently in a gift shop and saw a large collection of CAS black and white cards.  I wanted to take pictures of all of them!  The embossing is a Darice hearts folder.  I think this would be suitable as a masculine thank you.

It is really hard to photograph shiny objects, isn't it? This was a great idea, and you carried it out beautifully! Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Frilly and Funkie "It's Not Easy Being Green" Challenge!

At first glance I thought it was a stamp that had been pushed into hot embossing powder to create the panel. Thanks for sharing your neat "new faux tin art technique" / recycling items with us .
