Wednesday Stamper-Metal

I wanted to experiment with some metal this morning and when I checked the challenge at Wednesday Stamper I found that metal was the subject this week.
I stamped the snowflake image from Rubbernecker with Stazon ink on the back of a piece of blue metal from Ten Seconds Studio. I embossed it on the back then turned it to the blue side and sanded and used a wire brush around the image. The metal is mounted on a 4 X 4 chipboard and trimmed with vintage tinsel.
I also decided never to use such an intricate stamp again because too much detail was lost in the embossing. Next time I'll stick to a bolder image.
