Gearing Up

Hi all. A super quick post today (promise!!) Got to go down south to sort funeral arrangements and house contents for my uncle, so the kids/dog need decanting to M&D and that takes a bit of prep!! Apologies that I haven't done the rounds yet - will try catching up later.

So, here is my entry to this week's Sunday Stampers Challenge - Patterns. It's also going into the Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes.


Hurrah! The sun is out so you can see the mica in this (didn't work so well yesterday methinks). The patterns in this are courtesy of embossing folders.


The top part has been done using a mask, Perfect Medium, mica powder and a Silver gel rollerball pen.


Pick a technique, any technique here!! Shrink plastic, distressed Coredinations card, metal foil with alcohol inks, Silver outlining with that gel pen...


The gears are grungepaper covered in acrylic paint and ink. Brads finish it all off.
Told you I'd be quick!! Hopefully see you all v. soon (dependent on the avoidance of any more curveballs).
Hugs, Buttons x
