I've been playing with aluminium tape and embossing. The TH embossing folder gave really deep texture and I was super glad to find this text that suits the background. I'm posting my card for the Country View challenge (industrial), the Something to Alter challenge (Steampunk), SanDee and Amelie's Steampunk challenge and the WOW challenge (anything with embossing goes).

The aluminium tape was attached to a card and after embossing I added acrylic paints (raw umber and bone black) and light green alcohol ink. While doing the piece with the sentiment, I realized I'm going to have to by platinum embossing powder, the silver is too blue for the aluminium tape... But I have tinted it too with green alcohol ink (though I had to keep to the edges, because I had already stamped the sentiment with Stazon).  I couldn't trim the embossed card, because that would have spoiled the numbers, so I had to search my stash for a larger piece that would make it possible to mount this on a 5x7 card base. There is a skeleton leaf behind the sentiment, but it is barely visible :)
