The other day I got this idea that I would try to emboss on metalfoil so I made this tag to try it. It turned out really good and it was easy to do the embossning. It just got hot really fast because of the foil but that´s all.

Let me know what you think about it and if you have any ideas let me know and maybe I will try them out. :)


This is the basic material I used for my tag. Just cover the tag with the metaltejp, put in in the folder and run it throuh my CutleBug. After that I took some wire wool ( I hope I got the word right) and made the surface with more texture. Paint it with some black acrylic pain and wipe of until you get it the way you want.


I used a fine detail embossing powder just because it´s the only one I have :)
This is how the tag now looks like after the painting and the embossing. 

Now you can just put what ever you want on your tag. I made a sign using a text from Tim Holtz and some other cogwheels I had. For the cogwheels I did the same with the wire and the paint so they would match up.


For the sign I used a pink inkpad because I wanted some colour and randomly stamped it with a background stamp. I stamped the text over it and for the edges I used a scissors because I don´t have an edge scraper.










I hope you like my tag and if  there is anything you would like to know more of if there is anything you don´t understand, just ask me and I will explain it.

Happy crafting all.
