Stamping on metal

This is one of my favorites- it uses StazOn ink on metal. For the surrounding frame, after embossing it I applied alcohol ink and then used a sanding block and a brass brush to remove it from the embossed areas. To create the actual embossing, I stamped on the reverse of the metal using my current favorite swirl stamp from Stampers Anonymous and used that as my template for embossing. The main image stamp is from Oxford Impressions - you lose some of the photographic detail by stamping on the metal, but I still love the overall look.
