Embossing on Metal Tape

I saw this on You Tube and had to try it.  These elements were made using Shurtape which is a thin metal tape used for piecing together duct work, like the kind on the back of your cloths dryer.  It has a sticky back.  I cut the shapes with my Big Shot and Spellbinders dies.  For the scallop circle I taped two pieces onto a piece of cardstock to create a larger area (the tape is only 1 7/8" wide).   Then I used alcohol inks to color them.  I also added some Rub & Buff antique gold and patina to certain areas.  I can see great possibilities for using these on cards and layouts and the sticky backing makes it so easy to apply.
