It's All Perspective

This week Simon Says Stamp and Show embossing. The Tuesday Throwdown challenge is something metallic. Created by Hand has the challenge ribbon/silver.
To create my card, I started with a piece of silver metal and embossed it using one of Tim Holtz's texture fades. I highlighted the embossing with black Stazon Ink. The center image is from one of Tim Holtz's atc stamps. The background is colored by smooshing tag cardstock into distress ink sprayed with Perfect Pearl spray. The stamp was stamped with black Adirondack archival ink. The sentiment, also a Tim Holtz stamp, was done in the same way as the image. The result is a rather dramatic card.
