Cogs and Gears

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A busy day today, housework needs to be done and hoping to get some crafting done too.

If you missed my news about blogging then you can click the link here.

We are off to Paul and Gills for a meal tonight and really looking forward to catching up with them.

Today's card is a male card which is for one of my brother-in-laws.

Step by Step

1. Created a side stepper card using Kraft Card, I distressed around base card with DI Ground Espresso.
2. The first layer I created with shaving foam and Crafter's Companions Aqua Tints, then stencilled over with Cogs stencil and DI vintage photo.
3. The topper is a Tim Holtz stamp which I have stamped and embossed with WOW embossing powder onto Kraft card then distressed with DI walnut stain.
4. I then cut out the cogs and distressed with DI ground espresso and adhered to the card.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
