SOS164: Back in the Day

This week's theme at Shopping our Stash is Back in the Day, and we'd like everyone to use an old-school tool or an old-time image. Since I purged all my plastic cutting templates and old fashioned eyelet setter I had to use the second option.
I used an old steam engine image from SU Traveler set.  Embossed it with copper EP and layered it on Faux Patina background panel. if you never tried this technique, here is the video tutorial I followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYJZzMmPyjo
Challenges:
Clear It Out Challenge: embossing wet or dry (used both with older EF and EP)
Creative Card Crew - embossing
Sketch Saturday - sketch
A Gem of  A Challenge - embossing
