Poe embossed coffee can foil

So my wife made coffee this morning and, joking, hands me the foil from the new coffee can, “Here you go, something to emboss!” I was going to chuck it out but I noticed it had a really nice feel to it. Similar to pewter but thinner. So I embossed it. I found an old Poe image I used for a linocut a few years ago. I was just doing it as a lark really... bit of a warm up, but I like how it turned out. There were a few permanent crinkles that wouldn’t go away but otherwise, a really easy material to work with.

Here’s a look at the finished product which is in the shop:
